    A tractor-trailer carrying 50,000 pounds of strawberries overturned on Interstate 81 in Wythe County Monday afternoon.

    The northbound tractor-trailer crossed into the median and overturned in the southbound lanes on top of a pickup truck, said Virginia State Police spokesperson Corinne Geller. It happened at the 81-mile marker.

    The drivers of both the tractor-trailer and the pickup truck were transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

    The tractor-trailer's driver was charged with reckless driving and failing to wear a seat belt.
