Two wrecks on Interstate 77 between 2:45 p.m. and 2:55 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon left only minor injuries but thousands of dollars’ worth of damages, according to Trooper S.M. Cochran and Sgt. T.S. Todd of Virginia State Police.
Both accidents occurred in the vicinity of mile marker 22, according to the troopers.
According to Todd, the first wreck occurred when a northbound tractor-trailer driven by James Louis, 32, of Winterhaven, Fla., started fishtailing. Louis lost control and jackknifed into the median embankment.
