Posted: Updated:

An early morning accident on Interstate 64 sent one man to the hospital.

It happened at around 4 a.m. Thursday morning, when a driver tried to avoid a deer in the road. He swerved and lost control, which sent the vehicle off the road. The tractor trailer then went down an embankment on Interstate 64 near mile marker 110.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is showing that the westbound right lane and right shoulder are closed.

No major injuries were reported, but the driver was taken to an area hospital for observation.

Crews are working to remove the tractor trailer that remains on its side.
