Big block of cheese: Cheese truck blocks passage of Virginia Beach road

Virginia Beach

VIRGINIA BEACH (WAVY) — It wasn’t a Gouda morning in Virginia Beach for the driver of a cheese truck.

Indian River Road in southern Virginia Beach was closed Tuesday morning in both directions after a box truck carrying cheese went sideways.

It’s unclear what caused the crash at Riddick Lane, but the truck’s back tires were stuck in a ditch on the side of the road. WAVY viewer Shawn Quigley sent in a photo.

Virginia Beach dispatchers said they got the call at 7:30 a.m. and no injuries were reported.

It took a while to get a tow truck to get the box truck out, but the roadway was eventually reopened before 10 a.m.
