HANOVER COUNTY, Va. – Verdon Rd. reopened between Hewlett Rd. and New Market Mill Rd. hours after a fatal crash that involved a milk truck.

“The preliminary investigation indicates that a 1999 Kenworth tractor-trailer was traveling east on Verdon when it entered into a curve, crossed the center line, and ran off the left side of the roadway,” Hanover County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Chris Whitley said. “[The truck] then struck an embankment and overturned on the left side, which entrapped the driver.”

The truck driver died at the scene.

The crash happened about 12 p.m.
