1 dead, 2 injured in Wise County crash


The Virginia State Police is investigating a fatal three-way crash in Wise County.

It happened around 5:25 a.m. Thursday on Route 23 near mile marker 48.

A 2006 Toyota 4Runner was traveling north on Route 23 when it ran off the right side of the highway. Its driver over corrected, which caused the SUV to cross back into the northbound lanes and run off the left side of Route 23. The Toyota continued through the median and struck head-on a southbound 2010 Chevrolet 2500 pickup truck. The impact of that crash caused the Toyota to continue off the side of the southbound lanes and down an embankment. Meanwhile, the Chevrolet collided with a southbound 2016 Kia. ---According to Corinne Geller with the Virginia State Police

The female driver of the Toyota died at the scene. She has been identified as Michaela S. Maine, 41, of Pound, Virginia. Maine was the only person in the vehicle.

Both male drivers in the other two vehicles were taken to "nearby hospitals for treatment of non-life threatening injuries."
