High Winds Cause Tractor-Trailer Accident on Virginia Beach BridgePosted on Sep 28, 2011
Although police and bridge officials brought in a team to remove the rolled over vehicle from roadway -- the accident took place between the North Channel Bridge and the Chesapeake Tunnel nearer to the Eastern Shore -- authorities soon decided that moving the empty tractor-trailer in continuing high winds posed a danger to the workers involved in the project. Instead, police closed both sides of the bridge and tunnel for several hours and diverted traffic from the road until the winds had abated and the truck could be removed safely.
The spokesman for the bridge and tunnel reported that winds gusts of 55 to 60 mph were recorded around the time of the Virginia Beach truck accident.
