CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — There were major traffic delays on I-64 east near Deep Creek and the High Rise Bridge in Chesapeake Wednesday afternoon because of an accident.

Pictures from the scene show a boat on its side in the middle of the road.

Several lanes of 64 east were closed for some time, but traffic got by on the right shoulder. All lanes are back open and traffic is moving again.

Chopper 10 flew over the scene, where a large tow truck responded and hoisted the boat back upright and off of the roadway.
