Northbound lanes of I-81 are back open near Christiansburg after a deadly accident Tuesday.
Virginia State Police say an Infrastructure Corporation of America maintenance truck was stopped on the right shoulder of the highway while the maintenance worker was picking up debris from the road.
Around 1:30 p.m., that worker, 40-year-old Stephen Anthony Cox of Roanoke, was hit by a tractor-trailer. Cox was pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash is still under investigation. No charges have been filed against the semi driver, Keith Jordan of Connecticut.
