Virginia Tractor-Trailer Accident Kills Three

Comments Off

A Canadian family heading south on Interstate 77 in Virginia was involved in a tractor-trailer accident Thursday evening. Three people were killed and two were injured. The accident happened in Wyeth County.

Conroy said the father was operating a Dodge Durango pulling a 35-foot camper and headed southbound on the interstate around 7 p.m. He apparently lost control of the vehicle, crossed the median and hit a northbound tractor-trailer rig head on, the sergeant said.

The victims were the 33-year-old father, 35-year-old mother, and 7-year-old daughter. The two other daughters were taken to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. The extent of their injuries is unknown. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured in the accident.
