JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. — The driver of a tractor trailer was taken to the Medical College of Virginia with serious injures after an accident in James City County this morning.

State police said the male driver ran off the right side of I-64 in a work zone on just after 7:10 a.m.

The 2020 Kenworth tractor trailer hit concrete barriers on that side of the road before the driver over-corrected, ran off the left side of the road, hit a guard rail and overturned. 

The truck, fully stocked with bread and dairy products, ended up in the median of the interstate.

The eastbound lanes of the interstate were still closed for the investigation by 11 a.m.

Police did not release the identity of the injured driver, but said charges are pending in the case.
