The southbound lanes of Interstate 81 are closed at the 81 mile marker in Wythe County after a tractor-trailer carrying 50,000 lbs. of strawberries overturned following a two-vehicle crash.
The Virginia State Police Department tells us the incident happened just after noon. According to VSP, at lease one person was injured. Troopers say emergency crews airlifted that person from the scene to get medical help.
VSP says all southbound lanes in that area are closed with traffic being detoured at Exit 84.
