UPDATE: ISLE OF WIGHT, Va. — Talk about a literal “roadblock” — actually “blocks” in this case.
Cinder blocks spilling from an overturned tractor-trailer caused roadways to close in Isle of Wight, Virginia, on the afternoon of Sept. 6.
WAVY reports the crash happened around 1:45 p.m. on the westbound lanes of U.S.-258 in Smithfield near Turner Drive. Traffic was closed for hours, delaying motorists.
The front side of the tractor-trailer, including the cabin, was apparently crushed in the crash, according to WAVY.
WAVY reported that a single occupant was partially ejected and pinned in the crash. They were extricated within 10 minutes after crews arrived, after which they were stabilized and transported to the hospital for treatment.
