SUFFOLK, Va. - Crews rescued the driver of a tractor-trailer that's hanging off I-664 at the Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel.
Va. State Police say the rig lost control, hit the side of the bridge and caught fire. The cab of the rig is dangling over the side.
All lanes on I-664 in both directions were closed around 8:30 a.m. as crews worked to rescue the driver and clear the accident. Photos from Va. State Police showed the driver in the cab and a crane from Kings Fork Rescue in Suffolk moving into position to get her. The rescuer was wearing a shirt that read Newport News Fire-EMS.
If you're not already stuck in traffic, use the James River Bridge and the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel as alternate routes between Southside and the Peninsula.
Va. State Police weren't sure how long the M&M would be closed.
