Authorities have released the names of the three people who were killed in a Wise County crash on U.S. Route 23.
According to Virginia State Police, a 2006 Toyota Sienna was traveling south on U.S. Route 23 when it ran off the left side of the highway and went into the median. The Sienna struck a culvert and flipped several times as it crossed into the northbound lanes of the roadway. The Sienna then struck a northbound 2004 GMC Envoy and rolled over top of the GMC. The Sienna finally came to rest on the other side of the GMC.
The driver of the Sienna, Fred B. Russell, 60, of Mouthcard, Kentucky, died at the scene. The two passengers in the GMC, Pamela K. Stanley 54, and John B. Stanley, 52, both of Clintwood, Virginia, were taken to Holston Valley Medical Center in Kingsport. They both died from their injuries Sunday.
The driver of the GMC, Makayla J. Horne, 20, of Clintwood, was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
The crash remains under investigation.
