One person is recovering after a multi-vehicle crash on I-295 that closed all southbound lanes near Route 10 in Chesterfield on Thursday.

Police say the driver of a BMW traveling north crossed the median into the southbound lanes, struck a guardrail, then continued on in the southbound lanes. The BMW then crashed with two other vehicles, causing one to overturn, before causing a tractor-trailer to jack-knife in the left lane.

The driver of the BMW was taken to MCV Hospital by med-flight with non-life-threatening injuries. No one else was hurt in the accident.

The driver, Hector Morales, Jr., 28, has been charged with reckless driving, no operators license and possession of marijuana. Police say fatigue may have been a factor in the crash.

The crash is still under investigation.
