There was a scary sight for drivers as a garbage truck flipped over near the 250 Bypass.

Police said the truck driver took the turn to the bypass on-ramp too fast and flipped into the hillside. Police blocked off the Rugby Avenue on-ramp for over an hour.

The truck driver was taken to UVa Medical Center for observation and he will be charged with reckless driving.
