Juvenile charged in head-on crash on Route 501
Bedford County, Va. -

State Police say a juvenile has been charged with reckless driving after a head on crash on U.S. Route 501 Sunday afternoon.

The juvenile was rounding a curve when he crashed head-on into a tractor trailer.

Troopers say his speed wasn't adjusted for the weather conditions when the crash happened.

The teen was wearing a seat belt and only had minor injuries.

By the time WDBJ7's crews got to the scene, it had already been cleared.  Workers with the Virginia Department of Transportation were cleaning up the mess.

They tended to a small oil spill on the road.
