HANOVER COUNTY, Va. -- Authorities have released the name of the driver killed in a three-vehicle wreck along Route 33 in Hanover County Friday evening.

Deputies were called to a three-vehicle crash in the 13600 block of Mountain Road at 5:20 p.m.

"The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2010 Subaru was traveling eastbound on Mountain Road (Route 33) when it rear-ended a 2013 Kia, also traveling eastbound," Lt. James R.
