One lane of Route 29 was closed in southern Albemarle County because of a truck crash earlier in the day.

The truck spilled a load of lumber onto the northbound lanes of Route 29, near Covesville.

One lane on the northbound side was closed for several hours while crews cleaned up the scene.

The driver of the truck suffered minor injuries.
