Fatal crash produces four-mile backups on I-66
A fatal accident brought traffic to a standstill Friday afternoon on Interstate 66 in northern Fauquier.
At 12:35 p.m., a westbound pickup truck, pulling a trailer, fishtailed, veered into the median near Delaplane and overturned, state police Sgt. Les Tyler said.
The crash killed Anthony Joseph Montavon, 56, of Harrisonburg, who drove the 2002 Ford F-250.
Ejected from the truck, Mr. Montavon wore no seatbelt, Sgt. Tyler said.
An ambulance took Mr. Montavon's passenger to the Winchester Regional Medical Center.
The accident closed both eastbound lanes of I-66 for more than two hours and restricted westbound traffic to one lane.
Police detoured vehicles onto Route 55 and secondary roads in the area, creating a traffic nightmare.
The Virginia Department of Transportation reported backups as long as four miles on I-66.
Trooper J.T. Price continues to investigate the crash of the truck, which travelled in the left lane and pulled a three-axle “lowboy” trailer with a light load of lumber.
Fire and rescue units from Marshall, The Plains and Fauquier County emergency services responded, along with Fauquier sheriff’s deputies and VDOT crews.

Prayers for the man and his family.
What an unfortunate reminder of the reason for a seatbelt.
