HANOVER CONUNTY, Va. -- A multi-vehicle crash involving a tractor-trailer snarled traffic on Interstate 95 south near Doswell in Hanover County Friday afternoon.

The wreck closed all lanes of I-95 south near mile marker 100, VDOT officials said in an email around 2:20 p.m.

As of about 3:30 p.m., the interstate's south right lane and shoulder were closed and traffic was backed up about 8 miles.

"Expect continued delays and seek alternate routes," officials said.

All lanes of the interstate had reopened by about 4:30 p.m., according to officials, but at that point the 8-mile backup remained.
