One person was flown to the Fairfax Hospital trauma center after a tractor trailer and pickup truck collided on Route 29 early this morning, according to Warrenton Volunteer Fire Company Chief Sam Myers.
The driver of the pickup truck was trapped in his vehicle, but the responding crew members were able to free the driver in 15 minutes, according to Myers.
Ten volunteers from WVFC and three Department of Fire and Rescue Emergency Management staff responded to the accident, which happened just before the Meetze Road exit.
"All personnel did an outstanding job to mitigate this incident in a timely and efficient manner," Myers said.
The Fauquier County Sheriff's Office is investigating the accident.
