FANCY GAP — A 2007 Subaru hydroplaned on Interstate 77 near the 9 mile marker on July 11, tumbled down a ravine and burst in flames — but the three occupants inside walked away almost unscathed.
Alana Louise Gibson, 16, of Riegelsville, Pa., was heading north on the interstate with her two sisters in the vehicle, according to Virginia State Police Trooper J.A. Vaughan.
"They came up on a real heavy thunderstorm," the trooper said. "Their vehicle hydroplaned and went off the road to the left, striking the guardrail."
