HENRICO COUNTY-- An overturned tractor trailer shut down all eastbound lanes of West Broad Street in Short Pump near Interstate 64 Tuesday morning. The lanes have since reopened.

The tractor trailer came off I-64 onto West Broad Street and overturned trying to avoid two cars, police said.

"Two guys were dancing in the cars in front of me," the driver said. "I tried to pass them... but I overturned."

The truck driver was not seriously injured.

Police said the tractor trailer was likely going too fast as it exited I-64.
