ROANOKE, Va. -

Two people are dead after a fiery crash on Interstate 581 in Roanoke Wednesday afternoon.

Virginia State Police says it happened around 5 p.m.

Troopers say a car veered into the path of a tractor trailer, hit the truck, then crashed into the median.

They say the impact caused the tractor trailer to cross the median and into the opposite lanes, where it hit a second tractor trailer.

That crash also involved two other vehicles.

Troopers say the crash killed both tractor trailer drivers and sent two other people to the hospital.
