Hazmat Closes I-95 South For Most of the Morning; Now Reopened

Two tractor trailers tangled early this morning in Stafford County and shutting down the Southbound lanes of I-95 for most of Friday morning.
The accident happened before 6 a.m. where the ramp from Southbound U.S. 17 merges onto I-95 Southbound. 
The first tractor-trailer was hauling barrels of an organic, corrosive, liquid material – phosphoric acid. The impact of the crash caused several barrels to fall off the tractor-trailer and land in the right southbound lane. The driver of this tractor-trailer is Phillip C. Harris, 40, of Hopewell, Va.
The driver of the second tractor-trailer, James E. Harris, Jr., 35, of Chester, Va., was charged with following too closely. (The two drivers are NOT related)
Traffic was being diverted onto U.S. 1 South causing major headaches for motorists traveling the surface streets of Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania County to the South of the accident scene.
 At one time traffic was backed up the Stafford-Prince William County line.
