The driver received non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital.

Troopers say the tractor trailer was delivering food to a Super Value in Mechanicsville.

The United States Department of Agriculture decided to salvage the food from the truck.

The scene has not been cleared yet because crews have to unload the cargo by hand before the truck can be towed.

The right lane is closed and drivers should expect delays.
