Truck Driver Hits Parked VDOT Vehicle

A crash in Newport News led to the death of a truck driver, WAVY 10 reports. The accident occurred when a tractor trailer driver drove into a parked V-DOT vehicle. The V-DOT truck was sent into the roadway, colliding with a second tractor trailer. The driver of the second big rig lost control and struck trees, overturning on the side of the road. His container turned completely upside down, with the truck stuck between the treeline and the trailer. Tragically, this second truck driver was killed on impact.

Adjusting Your Speed in Work Zones

The eastbound lane of I-64 was closed for nine hours while rescue workers cleared the scene. The site had been a work zone where V-Dot workers were widening the lanes. Experts say this story serves as a warning about what can happen when drivers don’t adjust their speed or watch out for construction workers in work zones. It’s important to stay alert whenever you’re driving, but even more so when you’re heading through an area where workers might be.
