MECHANICSVILLE, VA (WWBT) - A 76 year old North Carolina man is dead following a three-vehicle crash on I-295 South in Hanover.
State Police tells us shortly before 2:30 p.m. Friday they responded to an accident near the Mechanicsville Turnpike exit. They say a Toyota Camry ran road hitting a AAA service truck and a 2009 Toyota Highlander.
The Camry's impact with the F-350 service truck caused the service truck to strike the driver of the Highlander, Bobby Hadaway, who was outside of his vehicle. Hadaway died at the scene. His wife, 71 year old Carolyn Hadaway was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and is expected to be ok.
The driver of the Toyota Camry suffered serious non-life threatening injuries and was flown by med-flight to VCU Medical Center. A six year-old male and a three year-old female were transported to the hospital for evaluation. The AAA driver was not injured.
At the time of the crash, the Toyota Highlander was disabled on the left shoulder with a left-rear flat tire and had called for AAA service. The crash remains under investigation. Charges are pending.
The crash briefly closed all lanes of the interstate at Mechanicsville Turnpike.
A second accident happened on I-295 South at the I-64 East ramp. A tractor trailer flipped onto its side, closing the ramp. No word of any injuries at this time.
