An unidentified man died after the moving truck he was driving ran off Interstate 77 on Wednesday afternoon.
Shortly after 1:30 p.m., emergency crews were dispatched to the area just south of Exit 19 northbound on the Interstate.
The man, whose identity was not released yet, was heading north on I-77 when he drifted off of the left lane into the median and down an embankment. He had to be extracted from the vehicle and was airlifted to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., where he died Wednesday night.
Virginia State Trooper S. Kinney is investigating the accident. In addition to the State Police, the Carroll County Sheriffs Office, Hillsville Volunteer Fire Department and Carroll County Fire & Rescue personnel assisted in the aftermath of the accident.
