Trucker Responsible for James River Bridge Chain-reaction Crash

Posted on Feb 24, 2012
Virginia State Police charged a truck driver with following too closely following a chain-reaction traffic accident on the James River Bridge last week.

According to Virginia news sources, the multiple-vehicle accident took place on Tuesday, February 7, in Richmond during the morning rush hour. A commercial big-rig, driven by 50-year-old Craig A. McKenzie of Midlothian, was crossing the James River Bridge on I-95 North when he slammed into the back of the car in front of him. In turn, the two vehicles in front of that car were also rear-ended. The crash took place at approximately 7:15 a.m. and caused authorities to close the far lanes of the northbound interstate for about an hour and a half.

Four people were injured in the Richmond truck accident and transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. None of the injuries were life-threatening and a spokesperson for the Virginia State Police added that all drivers and passengers involved in the crash were wearing seat belts. The trucker was not injured.

It is not clear whether or not the trucker has a history of moving violations or accidents.
