HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Lanes of Interstate 295 north, near Kingsland Road (mile marker 21) in eastern Henrico, are closed Wednesday morning due to a crash, according to VDOT.

Images shared from the scene showed a truck on an I-295 overpass with a set of wheels on the road below.

"The preliminary investigation reveals that a 2005 Freightliner, 25’ box truck, was heading south in the center lane. The driver, Antoine Harris, 47, of Newark, New Jersey, changed lanes to the left lane then ran off the road into the median. The truck overturned and came to rest on the jersey wall over Kingsland Road. The fuel tank ruptured, releasing diesel onto the left lane and shoulder," a Virginia State Police spokesperson wrote in an email. "Harris did not report any injuries. A female passenger was transported with non-life-threatening injuries."

Harris was charged with failure to maintain a single lane.

Police were called to the crash at about 9:07 a.m.

This is a developing story.
