Culpeper crash kills Gainesville trucker

A 34-year-old Gainesville man was killed yesterday when he was partially ejected in a single-vehicle wreck in Culpeper County.

State police said Jeffery Y. Wines was driving a tractor-trailer northbound on U.S. 29, just south of state Route 762.

A large piece of equipment being towed by the tractor-trailer struck an overpass, causing the trailer and attachment to overturn.

The impact partially ejected Wines, who was not wearing a seat belt, police said.

The crash occurred at 9:50 a.m., and Wines died at the scene about 25 minutes later.

Virginia's 2007 highway death toll was 377 yesterday, compared with 371 as of the same date last year.
