Two unidentified people were killed Thursday afternoon and one person was injured in a three-vehicle crash on U.S. 29 northbound near the I-64 interchange, according to Albemarle County police.
The Culpeper district of the Virginia Department of Transportation said on social media that the wreck involved a box truck. All northbound lanes of U.S. 29 near exit 118 as well as the eastbound ramp to I-64 were closed while authorities investigated. Traffic was initially detoured onto the interstate.
Because of safety concerns, VDOT recently made changes to the interchange, including adding a traffic signal.
No other information has been released at this time.
