Truck crosses I-77 and crashes; driver dies

I-77-logoFrom Virginia State Police: At 8:06 a.m. Friday (July 3), Virginia State Police Sr. Trooper D.A. Phipps was called to the scene of a fatal crash in the southbound lanes of Interstate 77. The crash occurred near the 22 mile marker in Carroll County.  A tractor-trailer pulling double trailers was traveling north on I-77 when the driver apparently lost control of the vehicle as it came through a curve. The tractor-trailer ran off the left side of the highway, went through the median, and overturned across the southbound lanes of I-77. When the tractor-trailer entered the southbound lanes, the second trailer struck a 2014 Chevrolet Aveo. The driver of the tractor-trailer, Randall O. Page, 36, of Charlotte, N.C., died at the scene. The driver of the Aveo, a 22-year-old Ohio woman, was transported to Wythe Community Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.  The cause of the crash remains ongoing.
