SPOTTSWOOD, Va. (AP) - Virginia State Police are investigating a fatal crash involving a line-painting truck on Interstate 81 in Augusta County.
Spokeswoman Corinne Geller says the truck wasn't painting when the crash occurred at 7:05 a.m. Friday in the northbound lanes near Spottswood. The truck was headed to a work site in Nelson County.
Geller says the truck's right front tire blew out and the driver lost control. The truck then hit a guardrail and overturned. The adult male driver died at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt. The driver's name wasn't immediately released.
A male passenger was taken to Augusta Health Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
