SUSSEX COUNTY, Va. -- One person is dead in a fiery camper/RV crash that closed Interstate 95 in Virginia.

The incident was reported at about 12:21 p.m. on I-95 North near mile marker 33 in Sussex County.

Investigations found that a 77-year-old man was traveling northbound on I-95 when his 2010 Ford F250 ran off the roadway and struck a tree. The Ford was pulling a horse trailer that had four horses inside.

Once the truck hit the tree, it struck another tree, catching the truck and trailer on fire. The vehicles were fully engulfed in flames, killing the driver and two horses.

The two other horses survived the accident.
