Reston Man Killed in Five-Vehicle Crash in West Virginia

A Reston man was killed at the scene of a five-vehicle crash on a highway in West Virginia over the weekend.

John King, 32, was killed on the scene on Saturday, according to a statement by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. Nine people were injured in the crash.

A tractor-trailer failed to slow down in the northbound slow lane on U.S. 340, which is south of Charleston, pushing one vehicle into the other, according to Herald-Mail Media. The four pushed vehicles were mostly mangled, according to the sheriff’s office.

Two of the nine people injured — who were in the same car as King — are from Northern Virginia. Identities of the injured have not been released.

The tractor-trailer was carrying 80,000 pounds of potatoes, Herald-Mail Media reported.
