A tanker-truck driver has died in a overnight wreck on Interstate 66 in Warren County. Warren E. Wood, 61, of Broadway, died at the scene.
Clean-up at the scene will likely impact weekend travel plans for Manassas residents heading west, as all lanes are closed at least until noon Friday, according to Virginia State Police.
Troopers responded to the scene at 2:39 a.m. at the 11 mile marker of I-66, according to VSP spokesperson Corinne Geller.
"A Toyota Corolla was traveling west on I-66 when it lost control and spun out in the roadway," she said in a statement. "The Toyota struck a westbound tanker truck, which then ran off the right side of the interstate and overturned."
Wood's tanker overturned in the wreck. It was loaded with approximately 8,000 gallons of fuel, but did not rupture.
The driver of the Corolla, 23, of Stephens City, was not injured in the crash. She has been charged with reckless driving.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
