JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. – A crash involving a dump truck caused major traffic delays for drivers on I-64 eastbound.

On Saturday just before 3 p.m., a 2013 Volvo dump truck was traveling eastbound on I-64 when the truck’s front tire blew out.

When the truck tried to move to the closed shoulder, it hit another vehicle, causing the truck to overturn over the guardrail and into the ditch.

The dump truck was fully loaded with sand at the time of the incident.

The driver was not injured and speed was not a factor.

Interstate 64 eastbound was shut down for an extended period of time while the truck was removed from the ditch. A detour has since been lifted.
