Venable is charged with reckless driving for an accident on I-95 at exit 74A in Richmond, VA

State Police have charged a driver with reckless driving following a single-vehicle tractor trailer accident on Interstate 95 in Richmond, VA. Police were forced to close the exit ramp to the Downtown Expressway at exit 74 for almost eight hours while the wreck of an overturned tractor trailer was being cleared from the roadway.

The accident occurred around 11 PM when the driver of a 2002 International tractor trailer carrying dual trailers lost control of the vehicle, causing the truck to hit the jersey wall on the ramp. The second trailer then flipped on its side. The driver, fifty-six year old Wiley F. Venable, Jr. was not injured in the crash. No other vehicles were involved.

Virginia State Police say that speed was a factor in the wreck. Cautionary signs along the exit ramp advise drivers to slow down to 25 miles per hour when exiting the interstate.

The contents of both trailers had to be loaded onto a second truck before the flipped trailer could be turned upright. The ramp was reopened the next morning around 7 AM, causing slight delays in commuter traffic heading northbound into downtown Richmond.

Mr. Venable, of Midlothian, faces a reckless driving charge and must appear in court in the City of Richmond, Virginia.
