UPDATE: One Lane on Iron Bridge Road Likely to Remain Closed Overnight

CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — Three of four lanes have reopened on Iron Bridge Road in Chesterfield following an accident Thursday morning that blocked off the entire road.

The crash occurred around 9:25 a.m. just west of Irongate Drive. Police said a tractor trailer was traveling west on Iron Bridge Road when it went off the road on the right side, lost control and struck a utility pole.  The utility pole snapped, causing various utility lines to fall across all four lanes of Iron Bridge Road. No one was injured in the crash.

Just under 200 people are without power this morning in Chesterfield, according to Dominion Virginia Power.

An official with VDOT said that the right eastbound lane has converted to a work zone and will likely remain closed over night.
