Three people were airlifted to a Roanoke hospital Thursday night after a head-on collision in Giles County.
Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said troopers arrived at Virginia 100, near the intersection with Virginia 659, at 6:14 p.m.
According to Geller, Shane T. Wooten, 18, of Rich Creek was driving a 1990 Jeep Comanche pickup truck north, toward Pearisburg, when it crossed into the southbound lane and hit a 2006 Chrysler Crossfire driven by Lois A. Peters, 54, of Salem, Ohio. Her husband, Robert E. Peters, 58, also of Ohio, was a passenger.
Geller said the couple and Wooten were flown to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, all with life-threatening injuries. Hospital spokesman Eric Earnhart said both Lois Peters and Robert Peters were listed in critical condition Friday, while Wooten was listed in serious condition.
Virginia 100 runs between Dublin and Pearisburg. The crash occurred just southwest of Staffordsville.
Trooper A.C. Thompson is investigating the crash, Geller said. Police have determined all three people were wearing seat belts and that alcohol was not a factor in the wreck.
