Tractor trailer crash backs up I-81 for miles


A tanker trailer crashed on I-81 in Botetourt county Thursday afternoon, backing traffic up for miles. Around 2:30 p.m. the driver, 56-year-old Alan Day was traveling south in the right lane when the truck hauling frozen food ran off the road, hit an embankment and flipped over by mile marker 172.9. Day was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He has been charged with Reckless Driving.

The right lane of I-81 was shut down for two hours while crews cleaned up. It has since re-opened.
