Crash on Route 122 Sends Woman to Hospital

WDBJ reports that emergency workers have flown a woman seriously injured in a crash on Route 122 to the hospital. The crash happened in the middle of the day, and police officials closed the road for hours after the crash in order to clear wreckage and conduct a full investigation.

Crews worked to clear the scene, and the roadway reopened later that day. Officials reported no other injuries at the scene.

The car spun out after the crash and ended up in the middle of the roadway. The accident did not injure the truck driver despite the fact that he veered off the road and into a yard.
