PETERSBURG, Va. - One lane of Interstate 85 in Dinwiddie County is closed due an oil spill.

Virginia State Police say a pallet of chainsaw oil came off a southbound flatbed truck near the 64 mile marker shortly after 4 a.m. Monday.

State police charged the driver, 62-year-old Earl Baskfield of Prince George County, with failure to properly secure his load.

The left southbound lane remains closed while the spilled oil is cleaned up.
