PULASKI, Va. (AP) - Two Virginia State Police troopers are recovering from minor injuries suffered in a crash on Interstate 81 in Pulaski County.

State police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says troopers R.W. Hughes and W.L. Stumbo III had responded in separate patrol vehicles to a disabled tractor-trailer on Tuesday morning.

Geller says a pickup truck struck Stumbo’s parked vehicle before hitting another car. Stumbo, who was in the patrol car at the time, was treated at a hospital and released.

Hughes had been walking and was forced to leap over a guardrail to avoid being struck. Geller says Hughes was treated for minor injuries at the scene. The driver of the car was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Geller says the pickup truck driver was charged with reckless driving.
