An accident involving a tractor-trailer closed several lanes of I-64 westbound in Hampton at Harpersville Road on Friday afternoon.

The crash occurred when a 2003 Toyota Camry swerved to avoid debris in the road, lost control, and ran off the road. When the car went off the road, the driver overcorrected and struck the tractor-trailer head-on.

Denise Jackson, the driver of the Camry, as well as the passenger in that vehicle and the driver of the tractor-trailer were all transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Jackson has since been charged with reckless driving.

Additional details will be posted as they become available.
