Northbound Interstate-95 Closed Near Richmond; Four Dead In Bus Crash

May 31, 2011

"Four people have been confirmed dead in an Interstate-95 bus wreck," The Richmond Times-Dispatch writes, and the northbound side of the heavily traveled route is now closed starting at Exit 98 in Virginia's Caroline County.

The Washington Post's Dr. Gridlock says "northbound traffic is being detoured at exit 98 in Hanover County, directed over to Route 1 and back to I-95 North at exit 110 in Caroline County. The lanes will remain closed through the morning rush."

Dr. Gridlock also says "the bus was not a Greyhound, as some outlets reported this morning. The Virginia State Police confirmed it was not a Greyhound, but aren't relesing the name of the bus company and its departure point or destination until family members have been notified."
