Logging truck overturns on 295 ramp

HANOVER COUNTY, Va. — Clean-up after a logging truck overturned in Hanover County was completed and the ramp from Mechanicsville Turnpike (Route 360) WEST to Interstate 295 North reopened by Wednesday afternoon.

“Virginia State Police responded to a single-vehicle crash involving an overturned fully loaded log truck,” Virginia State Police spokesperson Sgt Keeli Hill said. “The Trooper’s preliminary report reveals that as the tractor trailer was attempting to take the ramp, the load shifted forcing the tractor and trailer to overturn.”

No injuries were reported and no charges filed in the crash.

The crash was reported at about 8:48 a.m.

The ramp was closed earlier Wednesday morning for clean up, Hanover County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. James Cooper said.
