A fully-loaded semi truck and trailer crashed on I-80 near the McBryde Avenue overcrossing in Richmond early Monday after colliding with an abandoned, unoccupied vehicle on the right-hand shoulder, according to the Richmond Firefighters Local 188, which responded to the scene.

The collision “sent the truck up the embankment causing it to roll,” the firefighters’ union reported, adding that the driver luckily escaped without injury.
