Nelson County, Virginia
For the 2nd time is under two months a semi truck used to haul turkeys has jackknifed on Route 151 near Bland Wade Road. Wednesday’s accident now has the northbound lane shutdown with a little of the southbound lane passable in the vicinity of Afton Family Medicine.
In December’s blizzard a turkey truck cutting through Route 151 between I-64 and US 29 jackknifed blocking the road and stranding over 400 drivers for nearly 5 hours in sub freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall.
Emergency crews are working now to get the truck off of the road and back open to normal traffic.
If you are traveling Route 151 Wednesday morning, expect major delays in the area of this accident.
