GALAX, Va. (AP) — Virginia State Police have identified the three victims of a chain-reaction crash involving nearly 100 vehicles along a mountainous, foggy stretch of Interstate 77.

The victims were identified Monday as 33-year-old William M. Sosebee of Allen, Ky., 71-year-old Kathern Worley of Iron Station, N.C., and 24-year-old Andrew Katbi of Delphos, Ohio.

State police said Sosebee and Worley were passengers in different vehicles that struck the same tractor-trailer, while Katbi was the driver of another vehicle that reared-ended a tractor-trailer. All died at the scene.

State police investigators said 95 vehicles were involved in 17 separate crashes within a mile span near the base of Fancy Gap Mountain near the North Carolina state line on Sunday afternoon. Twenty-five were injured.
