Just recently an accident took place on I-64 involving a tractor trailer and a car which shut down the highway for several hours.

The driver of the car, Jessica Aguero, 22, of Langley Virginia was flown to the hospital by helicopter while the driver of the tractor-trailer, Douglas Hartwill, of Richmond, Virginia was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries.
