Accident on Route 460 bypass in Christiansburg injures one person
March 30, 2011|By Web Staff

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. Route 460 west bypass has reopened to traffic.

The route 460 west bypass is closed and traffic is being diverted through the downtown Christiansburg exit as rescue crews deal with a single car accident. A Ford Ranger truck crashed into a concrete barrier and telephone pole. The driver was pinned in the vehicle and had to be cut out of the cab of the truck. Rescuers say the driver's injuries are not life threatening.

Oh God, he made them leave, they must have been VERY drunk. :( It was a horrible accident. Ayt LEAST one fatality. One person was ejected and in critical condition, another person had to be extracated in bad condition and a third was stuck inside the car, deceased. It was a Ford Focus. It flipped on its top and the back seat area was crushed. It was so horrible. RIP, and prayers to the survivors and all of the families.
Well i heard

Oh gosh, that's terrible. How "for sure" are U about all the info U put on here SAD? U know, if they knw those people left & were unable to drive, they can be held accountable, they should've called a cab or had someone else drive them. I know that they used to hold someone accountable in instances like this of whom didn't stop someone too drunk to drive just like a store clerk cannot sell U alcohol if they think U don't need it, too drunk.. I pray that everyone is okay. Any names yet?

My family and I came through just as the accident happened right in front of us. There was only two involved in the accident. The young man was ejected out and dead at the scene. The young lady had to be cut out with the 'jaws of life'. She was critical with severe head trauma and I hope and pray to God that she makes it. I have not heard anything this morning but I can tell you this much, it was the most horrific thing I have ever saw in my whole life and unfortunately I had children in the vehicle with me who also witnessed and should never had to see such a thing. I hope and pray that people realize that you should NOT drink and drive. As for the vehicle, I honestly could not tell you what kind it was. It was TOTALLY destroyed. I think it might have been a gold color. This was tragic and somewhere today there will be a family grieving. My thoughts and prayers are with them today.

No, and we don't know why they. Were even in the area. Yes, my cousins husband passed away, but she is still living. She is in critical condition. Bruised lungs, head trauma. She still doesn't know her husband has passed. And they aren't for sure they were drinking, that hasn't been confirmed yet. She has two young boys, so please keep us in your prayers.
might know her
