Tractor-Trailer Hits Bridge, Causes VRE Delays
Virginia Railway Express riders experienced delays this morning after a tractor-trailer hit a railroad bridge between Woodbridge and Lorton, VRE’s Jeremy Flores announced via TrainTalk shortly after 7 a.m. Delays ranged from 10 minutes to a half hour. Prior to the accident, trains were already running under speed restrictions.
The bridge had to pass a safety inspection before trains were allowed to cross it. Flores announced at about 7:30 that trains were once again allowed to cross the bridge at normal speeds.
