HANOVER COUNTY, Va - A tractor trailer driver was charged after his big gig carrying Bob Evan breakfast sausage overturned in Hanover early Monday morning.

"Our investigation determined that a tractor trailer had been traveling on I-295 south when it exited the interstate onto Route 301 south. When the tractor trailer made the turn onto Route 301 (Chamberlayne Road) it ran off the left shoulder of the roadway, struck the guardrail, and then overturned," a Hanover Sheriff's spokesperson said."The driver sustained minor injuries and was transported to a local hospital as a precautionary. Furthermore, the driver was charged with reckless driving and failure to wear a seat belt."

The crash, which was reported at about 1 a.m., closed the road for several hours.

The road and ramp fully reopened by Monday afternoon.
