HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) – As the saying goes, don’t cry over spilled milk.

An overturned milk truck closed the ramp to I-295 from Staples Mill Road in Henrico County for several hours Monday afternoon.

According to Virginia State Police, a tractor trailer loaded with 4,600 gallons of milk overturned around 1 p.m. The driver of the truck was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Troopers charged him with reckless driving.

It took crews roughly two-and-a-half hours to clear the mess and reopen the ramp.
