Verbatim release from VSP below:

“Virginia State Police Trooper L.G. Pingley is investigating a two-vehicle crash in Nelson County. The crash occurred Feb. 11, 2022 at 1 p.m. on Route 29 less than a mile south of Route 776.

A 2020 Dodge Charger was traveling south on Route 29 when it lost control and ran off the left side of the highway. The Dodge went into the median, became airborne, re-entered the southbound lanes and struck the side of a tractor-trailer. The impact of that crash caused the Dodge to overturn several times and finally come to rest in the median. Meanwhile, the tractor-trailer ran off the right side of the highway and struck several trees.

The driver of the Dodge, Sheldon C. Anderson, 34, of Lynchburg, Va., was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the car. He was transported to UVA Medical Center for treatment of serious, but non-life threatening, injuries.

The driver of the tractor-trailer, Richard D. Crowley, 58, of Reidsville, N.C., was transported to Lynchburg General Hospital for treatment of serious, but non-life threatening, injuries. He was wearing a seatbelt.

The crash remains under investigation and charges are pending.
