Portion of Interstate 81 Was Shut Down for Multiple Hours Due to Two Vehicle Crash

5 January 2017 News


Interstate 81 south bound at exit 283 near Woodstock was shut down for multiple hours last night. This was due to a two vehicle crash that occurred between a car and tractor trailer. At approximately 4:10pm the car ran off the pavement and struck the truck in the rear that was stopped off the shoulder of the road.

The driver of the car was airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital.

Motorists were able to continue progress on I-81 by following a detour through on and off ramps but there were significant delays. One lane of I-81 was able to be reopened before 6:00pm. Shortly after 7:00pm both lanes were reopened.
