UPDATE 9:45 p.m.: The Albemarle County Police Department and Department of Fire Rescue report one person suffered minor injuries in the multi-vehicle crash that closed part of Ivy Road for several hours on Friday.

The crash occurred around 2:50 p.m. between Tilman Road and the western entrance to Morgantown Road.

The driver had already gotten out of the truck and had minor injuries.

However, the closure is expected to last for at least a couple of hours.
