Tractor trailer accident creates traffic problems

An Indiana man was charged with reckless driving early this morning when the tractor trailer he was driving crashed on the exit ramp from Interstate 95 to Interstate 295 northbound in Henrico County (Exit 84B).

The driver, 31-year-old Mike L. Hylton, Jr., was trapped inside the vehicle for nearly 90 minutes following the 3:30 a.m. crash, according to Virginia State Police. He was wearing his safety belt and was transported to VCU Medical Center by ambulance with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The tractor trailer overturned as it exited onto the ramp, striking approximately 40 yards of guardrail before coming to rest on its roof.

Hylton was traveling from Toano, Va. to Hedron, Ky., at the time of the crash.  The trailer was fully loaded with empty liquor bottles, some of which spilled out of the trailer.  The remainder of the bottles will be offloaded by hand before authorities upright the trailer. Cleanup efforts are expected to last into the afternoon. 
Speed is considered a factor in the crash.
