CHESTERFIELD, Va (WTVR) – Route 10 at Enon Church Road reopened around noon Tuesday after being closed for hours because of an overnight accident.

The lengthy closure was neccesary as crews worked to restore  power lines that were torn down during the crash.

The closure caused big delays for drivers Tuesday morning, In fact, some Chesterfield school buses were up to an hour late to school because of the traffic mess. 

Motorists were encouraged to use Route 10 to access Bermuda Orchard Road to Enon Church Road to Point of Pocks Road and back to Route 10.

Here’s video and details of what was going on earlier this morning.
