Police ID driver killed in King William tractor-trailer collision


Virginia State Police have identified the person killed in a tractor-trailer collision in King William on Thursday.

Police say a tractor-trailer was heading east on Route 30 and slowed down for a school bus that was at the intersection. The tractor-trailer behind it, driven by Joseph M. Jackson Sr., 64, of Mineral, failed to stop in time and rear-ended the first tractor trailer.

The driver of the first tractor-trailer was not injured, while Jackson died at the scene. Police say Jackson was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. 

"Both tractor-trailers were loaded with logs, some of which shifted during the impact of the crash," Virginia State Police said.

The crash happened at 7:11 a.m. and is still under investigation.

No charges will be filed.
