CENTREVILLE, Va. (AP) - A Virginia Department of Transportation worker and two other motorists have been injured after a crash in Fairfax County.

Virginia State Police say the incident happened Friday afternoon in Centreville.

Police say a VDOT Safety Services Patrol employee was assisting a motorist with a flat tire on Interstate 66 when a pickup truck crashed into the worker’s vehicle, pushing it into the motorist’s stranded SUV.

Police say the VDOT worker, the SUV driver and pickup truck driver all sustained serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. They were transported to local hospitals.

The pickup truck driver, 35-year-old Seth Ferrell of Beverly, West Virginia, was charged with reckless driving and failing to yield to emergency vehicles. It isn’t clear if he has an attorney.

Police believe fatigue was a factor in the crash.
