VDOT’s 511 Virginia website was still reporting the closure as of 1:50 p.m., nearly two hours after Isle of Wight County’s IW Alert message system warned of a then-unspecified “incident” just before noon, roughly one mile south of Courthouse Highway’s intersection with Route 620. The 511 listing had gone away by 3:25 p.m. and by 4:32 p.m. a new county alert announced the road had reopened.

State Police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Anaya said no injuries resulted from the crash.
