Tractor-trailer overturns on Route 460

SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – The driver of a tractor-trailer suffered minor injuries in a crash on Route 460 Monday morning.

Diana Klink with the City of Suffolk said the crash occurred just before 9 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of Route 460 near Gardner Lane. The tractor-trailer ran off the roadway and overturned, hitting a Dominion Virginia Power light pole.

The driver was transported to Sentara Obici Hospital.

Dominion crews are on scene because of downed power lines and customers in the area may find themselves without power.

Traffic was alternated eastbound and westbound as crews worked to remove the tractor-trailer and repairs could be made. Around noon, Klink said they stopped alternating traffic, however, one lane in each direction remains closed.
