Last Thursday, July 23 an unfortunate series of accidents had I-81 in Virginia closed for about twelve hours.
The first accident involved a tractor trailer full of watermelons that ran off the road and overturned in the median. As you can imagine, it made a big mess in the highway and traffic was detoured onto US Highway 11, causing a back up that stretched for several miles.
About three hours later the worst of the series of crashes happened when a tractor trailer did not slow down in time for the detouring traffic and struck a car. The impact forced the automobile underneath a tractor trailer in front of it and caused a chain reaction of several trucks hitting each other.
One of the tractor trailer’s fuel tanks ruptured and caused a fire that spread rapidly and destroyed the passenger vehicle. The occupants of the car died at the scene.
There were two other crashes that day but no further deaths.
What a horrible and crazy day on the interstate. Interstate 81 has an extremely high amount of trucks driving on it and is the state’s most dangerous road.
