Accident involving a tractor-trailer closes Route 220 in Fieldale



FIELDALE, VA – William F. Stone Highway in Fieldale was closed due to two separate vehicle accidents on Wednesday.


The accidents occurred near the 609 exit at around 11:53 a.m.


According to Virginia State Police, the first accident occurred when a grey Volkswagen hydroplaned and blocked the southbound lanes.


When traffic stopped for the hydroplaned vehicle, a tractor-trailer hauling milk was unable to stop and rear-ended a silver Hyundai sedan, police said.


A man was transported to the hospital for whiplash and to be checked out, according to state police.

The crash remains under the investigation of state police.
