From the Virginia State Police FB page..."TRAFFIC ALERT: VSP Investigating Multi-Vehicle Crash in#HamptonRoadsBridge-Tunnel (#HRBT)
VSP is on scene of a 7-vehicle traffic crash in the eastbound lanes of I-64 inside the HRBT. The crash occurred at approximately 8:22 a.m. Wednesday (5/15). There are no injuries reported at this time.
The preliminary investigation reveals that a Ford F-350 box truck traveling east on I-64 swerved to avoid slowing traffic ahead of it. The box truck swerved into the path of a tanker- truck, which caused the tanker-truck to strike the tunnel wall. The box truck jack-knifed into the tractor trailer, which sparked a chain reaction of vehicles crashing in the eastbound lanes inside the HRBT.
The tanker-truck is loaded with hot tar and is being handled as a hazardous materials situation.
