A multi-vehicle accident resulted in the death of two individuals on Aug. 6. The truck accident occurred in the morning hours on Interstate 64 in Albemarle County.
According to the Virginia State Police, a flatbed tractor-trailer failed to stop in time for traffic that had slowed ahead and rear-ended a Nissan Pathfinder. The impact caused the Pathfinder to hit a Lincoln Town Car. A Chevy Suburban was also struck, which caused it to leave the interstate and roll over. In the process, the Chevy struck a second semi-truck. The Lincoln vehicle caught fire after it was struck by the first tractor-trailer.
