UPDATE: The crash, which involved a box truck, has been moved to the shoulder, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. But there are still backups for northbound traffic just south of the Centreport Parkway and on U.S. 1.

A tractor-trailer crash has shut down two lanes of northbound Interstate 95 near the Quantico exit, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The crash happened at 9 a.m. about a mile south of the exit and has closed the left and center lanes.

There is another incident reported about three miles south of the tractor-trailer crash, near the Garrisonville exit. That incident has only the shoulder closed.

Backups are estimated at seven miles.
