HANOVER COUNTY, Va. – One person was seriously injured after a three-vehicle crash involving a pickup truck and two tractor-trailers on Interstate 1-295 in Hanover County Tuesday afternoon.

Virginia State Police say troopers responded to the crash, near mile marker 34, at approximately 3:28 p.m.

An investigation revealed that a pickup truck traveling southbound veered over and struck a tractor-trailer, which then struck another tractor-trailer. The first tractor-trailer overcorrected and veered off-road, hit a guardrail and went down a ditch line, partially overturning.
