A tractor-trailer overturned in Isle of Wight at Rt. 17 and Brewers Neck Boulevard on Friday.

The truck flipped as it was attempting to turn onto Brewers Neck Blvd when it flipped onto its left side.

The truck appeared to be carrying a load of scrap metal, which has been dumped into the median.

Some passersby mistakenly thought the truck had rolled over onto a car because they spotted a mangled green sedan buried in the metal debris. But the sedan was one of at least two scrap cars that dumped out of the trailer and onto the ramp to Brewer’s Neck Boulevard.

Crews are now working to clean up the load and upright the truck.

Neither Virginia State Police nor Isle of Wight County authorities were available to say if the crash resulted in any charges.
