Car-carrier semi hits I-95 overpass, busts water line in Henrico

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A crash involving a tractor-trailer carrying cars closed lanes and caused major backups on I-95 south in Henrico County Sunday night.

VDOT officials said the crash closed the interstate's right and center lanes near Hermitage Road and Lakeside Avenue just before 8:10 p.m.

Virginia State Police officials said the car-carrying semi struck an overpass, which busted a water line.

Additionally, officials said at least one of the vehicles being hauled came off the trailer.

Ismar Planic drove by the scene of the crash moments after it happened.

"A car in the middle of the road, completely destroyed," Planic wrote. "I was worried someone lost their life in it. Water was spilling all over the car."

No injured were reported, according to state police.

"Traffic is getting by in the left lane with a three-mile backup," VDOT officials said around 8:30 p.m.

The accident was cleared around 9 p.m., according to VDOT.
