Apr 08, 2013 -- 5:52pm

If you’re heading south into Virginia towards the Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge Tunnel – a crash this morning brought traffic to a standstill.  Coast Guard and Virginia State Police say a tractor trailer lost control and struck the bridge and ended up dangling off the side of the southbound span – with the female driver still in the cab.  She was rescued with minor injuries, but a large amount of diesel fuel was spilled, which caused the shut down of the southbound lanes.
