May 09, 2012|WDBJ7 Web Staff

An Amherst County road has reopened, after being blocked for several hours by a truck accident.

The crash happened around 2:50 p.m. Wednesday.  A tractor-trailer carrying a crane tipped on its side, blocking both lanes of traffic.  The driver of the truck was taken to the hospital, but his injuries are not life threatening.

Hydraulic fluid spilled from the crane and crews are working on cleaning it up. The accident is just west of Elon.  Route 130 is expected to be closed until around 7 p.m.

Cars are being detoured. Trucks can not use the detour and are being delayed.

In a separate accident on Route 43 in Bedford County, a tractor-trailer accident has closed both lanes near Woods Road. Traffic is being re-routed onto Route 644, then Route 122, Route 643, and then back onto Route 43.
