Log Truck Accident Closes Route 220

Comments Off

A log truck overturned on Route 220 near Fincastle, Virginia on Monday morning. The accident happened near Country Club Road. No one was injured in the accident.

The driver tells State Police he heard something pop, then lost control. Logs spilled across the median and both northbound lanes, making for a long cleanup. Traffic was slowed in both directions for hours as crews removed all the spilled logs.

Cleanup took most of the day due to the logs all over the road. Route 220 was opened back up by 5:00pm.
