MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - One man was killed and three people were injured in a collision involving a tractor-trailer rig and two other vehicles on Interstate 81 north of Martinsburg Thursday afternoon, according to West Virginia State Police.
Police had not released the names of any of the victims by late Thursday.
The accident occurred shortly before 5 p.m. in the northbound lane of I-81 at a construction site. The fiery wreck closed the highway for more than 2 1/2 hours, police said.
Sgt. J.D. Humphrey, the investigating officer, said the tractor-trailer driver failed to stop in time to avoid hitting a car as the traffic slowed to enter the construction area.
