BOTETOURT Co., Va. (WDBJ7) -- Original Story:
Crews say at least one person has been transferred to Roanoke Memorial Hospital following a double tractor-trailer accident in Botetourt County.

VDOT reports the accident occurred Wednesday morning at 6:01 a.m., near mile marker 151. The northbound right lanes and right shoulder are currently closed.

Troutville Volunteer Fire Department said the two tractor-trailers were traveling southbound on I-81 and drove through the median and ran off the road.

Crews said a long term lane closure has been put in place along the right northbound lane. So commuters can expect congestion and delays throughout the area.

One driver was reportedly transported to Roanoke Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
