Multiple accidents slow southbound interstate 81 Virginia


Multiple accidents on southbound Interstate 81 have slowed traffic in Rockbridge County, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

VDOT said the south right lane and right shoulder is closed near mile marker 200.1 due to numerous accidents. Traffic is backed up approximately three miles and motorists are asked to use caution and expect delays.

A tractor trailer wreck at the 198 mile marker was marked cleared by VDOT about 3:30 p.m. but the incident continues to cause delays.

Probably some poor trucker, who got woke up after a couple hours of sleep and told to move on…
