A tractor-trailer carrying turkeys overturned Wednesday morning in Henry County, closing one lane of U.S. 220 for most of the day.
VDOT spokeswoman Jamie Smith said the truck crashed about 7:30 a.m. near Virginia 669, northwest of Martinsville.
The northbound left lane of U.S. 220 was closed as crews cleaned up the wreckage. Smith said they attempted to wrangle the living turkeys so they did not create a hazard in the roadway. Some turkeys were killed in the crash.
Smith said another truck retrieved the truck's load.
The driver was charged with failure to maintain proper control of a vehicle, Virginia State Police spokesman Sgt. Robert Carpentieri said.
