PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Authorities released new information on a crash that killed one person and injured another last week. Troopers have identified the two Charlotte County men who were inside the pickup truck that was hit by a tractor-trailer in Prince Edward County.

According to Virginia State Police, troopers responded to a crash at the intersection of Route 460 and Pamplin Road shortly after 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 21.

Police say a 2019 Toyota Tacoma was traveling west on Route 460, tried to turn left onto Pamplin Road, and was hit by an eastbound 2007 Kenworth tractor-trailer. The impact of the crash then caused the Toyota to spin off the road and collide with a sign.

The driver of the Toyota — identified by authorities as 86-year-old William W. Clark of Charlotte Court House — was not wearing a seatbelt and was brought to the hospital with serious injuries.

However, a passenger in the Toyota — 59-year-old William Andrews Jr. of Charlotte County — was wearing a seatbelt, but he died at the scene of the crash, according to officials.

Meanwhile, police say 55-year-old Marvin E. Baskerville of Green Bay, Va. was driving the tractor-trailer and was not hurt in the crash.

As of Thursday, Oct. 28, Virginia State Police say this crash is still under investigation.
