HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) - Police charged the driver of a box truck that overturned on Interstate 64 Friday morning. Jeffery Gilmore, 24, of Baltimore, is charged with reckless driving and failure to maintain proper control, according to Virginia State Police spokesman Sgt. Thomas Molnar.

The overturned truck blocked lanes on Interstate 64 west near the Glenside and Staples Mill Road exits for about two hours Friday. The accident was cleared and traffic began flowing again around 8:00 a.m. The crash was reported just before 6:00 a.m.

The truck driver ran off the right side, hit the guardrail and the truck flipped back on the interstate, Molnar said.

At one point the left shoulder, left lane, and center lane were all closed at mile marker 183, according to VDOT.
