Two killed in U.S. Route 29 crash
Two people from Rhoadesville, Va. were killed in a two vehicle crash one mile north of Kelly's Ford Road near Remington, according to 1st Sgt. Les Tyler.
At 11:20 a.m. a 2000 Toyota sedan was driving in the northbound lane when it rear ended a 24 foot Gooseneck trailer being towed by a Ford F250 pickup truck, which was also traveling north.
In the Toyota were three adults and a 10 month old female baby.
The driver, 24-year-old Emily Nicole Hess of Rhoadesville, died while being transported to Culpeper Regional Hospital. She was not wearing a seat belt. The passenger, 46-year-old Linda Sweetser of Rhoadesville, died at the scene as a result of injuries. She was not wearing a seat belt.
A helicopter landed in the northbound lanes to transport 34-year-old Dallas Young of Rhoadesville, and a 10-month-old girl to University of Virginia Medical Center. Young was not wearing a seat belt. The infant was restrained in the car seat, but the car seat was not secured by the car's seat belt. No one was ejected from the vehicle, according to Tyler.
Both north- and southbound lanes were closed during the incident, which remains under investigation.
