Earlier today, an accident involving a tractor trailer and a V-DOT truck blocked the lanes.
It happened near the downtown Roanoke exit. Traffic backed up for miles as vehicles were diverted off the highway onto crowded side roads. State Police say the V-Dot truck was going slow as it cleaned the road's left shoulder..
That's when the big rig "rear ended" the V-Dot truck.
The driver of the V-Dot truck complained of minor injuries.
As for the driver of the tractor trailer- he faces charges of reckless driving. It took some time for crews to clean it all up because about 50-gallons of diesel fuel spilled .. A hazmat team was on the scene and had no problems.

Last month Warner closed a dozen D-M-V offices across the state as part of an effort to balance the state's budget.
Some G-O-P lawmakers say it is more than a coincidence that eleven of the twelve offices closed are in Republican districts.
The governor says the decision as to which locations were closed was made by the D-M-V.
He says Republicans "can't have it both ways."

He has apologized for Tuesday's incident, when he dangled his infant son over a balcony four floors up from a street in Berlin.

You take a stuffed animal and dangle it over the edge. But a child? A human being? She says this crossed the line of just being bad judgment because babies squirm ..and slip ..even when youre holding them tightly.
Michael I love you! Jackson is in Germany to accept a lifetime achievement award but some say his greatest work is behind him.
At one point Michael Jackson was the biggest-selling artist in the world. But as his latest CD Invincible proved he was anything but. Thriller sold more than 26 million copies Invincible, about four. DR. CAROLE LIEBERMAN/MEDIA PSYCHIATRIST: I dont know if theres much of his career left to hurt.
Media psychiatrist Carole Lieberman says many fans had already made up their minds about Jackson good or bad before this latest episode. And that Jacksons money and fame have kept him from getting good advice. His career is falling apart, his love life as we know is non-existent. Hes really in bad shape. Jackson has a son and daughter from a brief marriage to Debbie Rowe. He has not revealed the identity of his youngest sons mother. Chris Lawrence CBS News Hollywood.))

A new experimental cancer drug is suprising researchers in early testing.
It's designed to stop cancer by cutting off the blood supply to tumors.
Researchers say the drug shrinks tumors at a rate unprecedented for a drug so early in development.
In the first human trials- involving 23 people with terminal cancer- tumors in a quarter of the patients shrank by half or more.
The drug is so new it doesn't even have a name.
** Meanwhile early testing shows an experimental vaccine could be effective against a virus that causes cervical cancer.
The virus is known as H-P-V Type 16 and it accounts for about half of all cervical cancer.
Women who got the vaccine did not get the virus or show signs of precancerous tissue.
The finding raises the hope that someday cervical cancer will be sent into retreat in the same way as smallpox and polio.

They are competing for the Miss Prison show held at the country's only women jail.
The jury had to choose a winner from eight women inmates, who took part in the contest.
Organizers imposed a news blackout on the crimes the contestants had committed, despite persistent questions from the media.
The pageant was televised on one of Lithuania's networks.
21-year-old Krisitina was the winner of about a thousand dollars.
She is a single mother, who is half way through a four-year prison sentence.
Her eight month old daughter is in the facility with her.
