Kelly O’Sullivan with the Chesapeake Police Department told the incident happened around 9:45 a.m. on Military Highway near Greenbrier. A vehicle cut off a city dump truck, causing the brakes of the truck to lock up.

As a result, the trailer the dump truck was carrying overturned. O’Sullivan said the two vehicles did not make contact.
