CLEVENGERS CORNER– Two people were seriously hurt, and one person died following a Wednesday (Oct.4) multi-vehicle crash at the intersection or Route 211 (Lee Highway) and Route 229 (Rixeyville Road) in Culpeper County, according to the Virginia State Police (VSP).

VSP spokesman Sergeant Brent W. Coffey stated in a media release that his agency responded to a five-vehicle crash at the intersection, known as Clevenger’s Corner, at 6:08 p.m. Wednesday.

Coffey wrote in the release that four vehicles were traveling westbound on Route 211 when they stopped for a red light. A fifth vehicle was unable to stop and rear-ended one of the stopped vehicles, setting off a chain reaction crash involving all five vehicles.

One fatality was confirmed at the scene, while two people were flown to INOVA Fairfax Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries. Two other people were taken to Fauquier Health for treatment of minor injuries.

This is a developing story; Coffey said that more information would be released at a later date.
