DINWIDDIE – Virginia State Police says charges are pending in a Tuesday morning crash that left five people with serious injuries.

According to Virginia State Police Sgt. Keeli Hill, just after 10:30 a.m., troopers were dispatched to a two-vehicle crash along westbound U.S. Route 460 and Courthouse Road.

Once on scene, the responding trooper’s investigation revealed “a Honda Civic was attempting to cross Route 460 from northbound Courthouse Road when they were struck by a Lexus sedan on the westbound side of Route 460.”

A driver and two passengers from the Lexus were transported to the hospital by ambulance for treatment of serious injuries. A driver and one passenger in the Civic were transported by Med Flight to the hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

According to Hill, “At this time, it is believed that all occupants in both vehicles were not wearing seat belts.”

As their investigation continues, Hill confirmed that charges are pending as a result of the Tuesday morning crash.
