Thursday morning was filled with a string of crashes on Interstate 64 near Fluvanna in Virginia. The first two accidents happened in the westbound lanes between mile markers 129 and 131. Furthermore, the largest of the collisions included a crash between a semi and fire truck that sent hazmat crews to the scene. Moreover, this crash occurred as the fire truck was responding to the second accident when it was hit from behind by a tractor-trailer. As a result, the semi flipped over in the median and thus all the freight spilled out onto the roadway.
Although the fire truck had its lights and sirens on at the time of the accident, it apparently wasn’t enough to alert vehicles in the area. Three firemen were sent to a nearby hospital for monitoring, yet luckily were not injured. Likewise, the driver of the semi was unharmed in the accident as well. Since the semi was carrying hazardous material, crews had to empty it and thus clean up the roadway. As a result, the interstate was closed for several hours while crews cleaned up the pesticides, alcohol, and flammable liquids the semi was transporting.
