Crash claims life of Wise County man

The Virginia State Police reported that Senior Trooper J.T. Funk responded at 8:31 a.m. to the scene on the southbound lanes of U.S. Route 23 less than a mile south of Route 23B. The VSP said a 2005 Hyundai Elantra was traveling north on U.S. Route 23 when it ran off the right side of the road.

The VSP believes the driver overcorrected, causing the vehicle to cross back over the northbound lanes and off the left side of the highway. The car went into the median and overturned, then continued across the southbound lanes and struck the guardrail.
