HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Commuters ran into delays along I-64 after a three-vehicle accident involving two dump trucks and a passenger vehicle Thursday morning.

One dump truck overturned and spilled tar on I-64 east around 8:15 a.m., according to Sgt. Steve Vick with Virginia State Police.

For roughly hour, the left and center lanes were closed in both directions near Nine Mile Road (mile marker 193). But as of 9:16 a.m. all eastbound lanes were closed for crash cleanup.

Drivers were encouraged to use an alternate route to avoid delays.

All lanes had reopened and the backup was clear just after noon.
