RICHMOND, Va. -- All eastbound lanes have reopened along the Powhite Parkway (Route 76), near Forest Hill Avenue, in South Richmond.
Richmond Police are investigating after someone jumped or fell off the Forest Hill bridge at about 6:30 a.m. and was hit by a tractor-trailer on Powhite Parkway, police said.
The person was killed in the incident.
Previously the Virginia Department of Transportation cited a crash as the reason for the lane closures, however, Crime Insider sources told Jon Burkett someone jumped from a bridge onto the road.
Traffic was diverted to Chippenham Parkway while the lanes were closed.
