Three dead in Stafford I-95 crash
A married couple in their 70s from Stafford County and their 47-year-old daughter-in-law were killed early Friday when the minivan they were riding in struck another vehicle and veered out of control on Interstate 95 near Garrisonville, Virginia State Police said.
Melvin L. Miller, 73; his wife, Marilyn H. Miller, 70; and daughter-in-law Tina M. Miller, 47, all of the 200 block of Oak Grove Lane in Stafford, were traveling south in a Dodge Caravan when the vehicle struck a southbound Chevrolet Impala from behind at 6:17 a.m., police said.
The Impala, whose 29-year-old driver was not injured, struck a guardrail after the collision, police said.
The Caravan veered off the highway, rolled over, struck a tree and came to rest on its roof, according to police.
Melvin Miller, who was driving; his wife, who was in the front seat; and their daughter-in-law, a passenger in the rear seat, were wearing seatbelts, police said. Police said alcohol was not a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
