Police lights

Virginia State Police said Monday that a tractor-trailer driver died last week in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 295 in Henrico County.

State police responded to the crash about 10:15 p.m. Thursday. A 2013 Freightliner Cascadia tractor-trailer, carrying a load of lunch meat, was taking Exit 53B when it ran off the left side of the road and struck several trees, police said.

The driver, 64-year-old Thomas G. Howard of Judsonia, Ark., died at the scene. The truck was damaged, and the load was spilled.

The crash remained under investigation Monday.
