CARROLL COUNTY, Va -

One man is dead after a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 77

Virginia State Police say it happened around 11:00 Saturday morning (September 21, 2013) in the northbound lanes of Interstate 77 in Carroll County.

 Police tell us a tractor trailer was approaching stopped traffic when it was rear ended, causing it to skid across all northbound lanes.

Several other vehicles hit the tractor trailer.

Dan H. Grubb, 71, of The Plains, Ohio died at the scene. Several other drivers involved were taken to the hospital but are expected to be OK.

Police say heavy fog could have played a role in the crash.

The accident is under investigation.
