    ESSEX COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Two people are dead following a pick-up truck crash that occurred in Essex County Wednesday afternoon.

    At around 2:42 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22, Virginia State Police deputies responded to a single-vehicle crash in the 5300 block of Tidewater Trail that resulted in multiple deaths.

    Police said a 2003 Dodge pick-up truck pulling a small trailer ran off the road to the left and overturned, ejecting three passengers and entrapping the driver. Two of the three passengers died due to their injuries on the scene.
