DUMFRIES, Va. — Southbound lanes of I-95 are back open after they were shutdown for hours because of a tractor trailer crash Thursday morning

The crash shut down all southbound lanes of Interstate 95 in Dumfries,  just before Route 234, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The crash was reported around 4 a.m., but authorities have not offered details about the crash or what led up to it. Lanes were back open just before 7 a.m.
