HILLSVILLE — An early Friday morning downpour contributed to a wreck with a fatality on Interstate 77 at about 12:50 a.m., according to Virginia State Police Trooper C.H. Campbell Jr.
The incident happened near the 12.5 mile marker when a 2009 Mitsubishi Gallant driven by Susan Petty, 55, of Lexington, S.C., hydroplaned in the rainstorm while traveling north, as the driver attempted to pass a commercial vehicle.
Petty lost control and the vehicle, spun into the guardrail and then back out into the lanes of travel near the center line, facing south.
