HENRICO, VA (WTVR) - All eastbound lanes on I-64 at mile-marker 197 have reopened after a single-vehicle accident knocked down an overhead highway sign structure.

Neither Ugarte nor his passenger suffered any injuries. Police tell us they were wearing their seatbelts.

Ugarte has been charged with making an unsafe lane change.
