NORFOLK -- The driver of a tractor-trailer was injured after it overturned on Military Highway in Norfolk Monday afternoon.

Police spokeswoman Karen Parker-Chesson said the exit ramp from I-264 eastbound to Military Highway South has been closed due to the incident.  All exit ramp lanes are also closed on Exit 13A. 

Parker-Chesson said the double tractor trailer overturned due to a shift in the load it was hauling.

The driver/operator was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with injuries that don't appear to be life-threatening.

No other vehicles were involved and there are no other injuries.

Several wrecker trucks are at the scene to turn the double tractor trailer upright.
