    Driver killed in multi-vehicle crash - WAVY

    Virginia State Police say it was around 4 a.m. when 36-year-old Prince George resident Lawayne Bland drove his 2009 International tractor-trailer into a parked truck owned by VDOT. The crash forced the parked truck into oncoming traffic.

    Seconds later, troopers say a second tractor-trailer hit the parked vehicle and lost control.

    “When it hit the trees, it overturned into the treeline and the container trailer was totally upside down,” said Sergeant Christopher Gassner. “The truck was wedged between the trailer and the tree line.”

    Gassner says the driver, 69-year-old William Robinson of Staunton, died on impact.
