CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- The stretch of Huguenot Road in Chesterfield County that was shutdown for hours Saturday afternoon reopened around 7:40 p.m., according to Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) officials.

Chesterfield Police were called to the crash at the intersection of Robious and Huguenot just before 12:25 p.m.

VDOT officials said the crash closed all lanes of Huguenot between Robious Road and Featherstone Drive.

"Drivers are encouraged to use an alternate route until further notice," VDOT officials warned.
