CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – The driver of a trash-hauling truck suffered minor injures after his 1999 Volvo Flatbed overturned as it exited Route 288 onto Route 10 Thursday morning. The accident happened around 5:40 a.m., according to Virginia State Police spokesman Sgt. Thomas Molnar.

Michael A. Chicas-Sanchez, 31, of Bay Shore, NY, was charged with reckless driving-failure to maintain proper control, Sgt. Molnar said. He said speed was considered a factor in the crash.

Molnar said the trailer was loaded with 30,000 pounds of bundled trash.
