Carroll County Leaders Want Tractor Trailer Restrictions After Deadly I-77 Pileup

Posted: Updated:

Leaders in Carroll County are asking the state's transportation commissioner for help after a deadly pileup on Interstate 77 Easter Sunday.

Three people died in 17 separate crashes that police say caused a 95-car pileup on Fancy Gap Mountain.

The Board of Supervisors on Monday passed a resolution requesting that all tractor trailer traffic be restricted to the right lane on I-77 from mile markers 1-8, both northbound and southbound.

The restrictions would also limit truck traffic to 55 mph along this stretch.
