Lovingston Volunteer Fire Chief Danny Johnson told me by telephone that US 29 could be closed well into the early morning hours of Saturday. He said that additional crews are on the way to help with the cleanup, but it could take several more hours.

We first told you about a tractor trailer accident on US 29 in Woods Mill during the early afternoon hours Friday.
As of 8 PM Friday night traffic was still being rerouted around the accident scene down Route 151 bypassing the cutover from 151 along Route 6 River Road.
We are told by at least two different emergency service officials that a hazardous material is involved in the crash. When we asked specifically what hazardous material, we couldn’t get an answer other than to say it was stable.
We are continuing to update as we have information.
