PRINCE GE­ORGE — An over­turned trac­tor-trailer haul­ing ply­wood re­sulted in no in­juries to the driver but plenty of headaches for mo­torists try­ing to get through the area Thurs­day af­ter­noon.

Prince Ge­orge Po­lice Of­fi­cer Alexis Grochmal said the ac­ci­dent hap­pened shortly be­fore noon on state Route 35 near its in­ter­sec­tion with Tem­ple­ton Drive.

No one was hurt in the crash, but the truck’s load of ply­wood was dumped all over the road.

Route 35, also known as Court­land Road, was closed for an ex­tended amount of time while crews cleaned up the scene.

The Vir­ginia De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion sent out warn­ings to ex­pect de­lays and en­cour­aged mo­torists to find al­ter­nate routes around the scene.

Po­lice still are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cause of the crash. There has been no of­fi­cial word of any charges.
