NOTTOWAY, Va. (AP) — Three people were killed in a car that collided with a tractor-trailer at an intersection in Virginia’s Nottoway County, police said.

The driver of a 2005 Honda Accord and two passengers — a man and a woman — died at the scene of Saturday night’s crash, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

The driver of the tractor-trailer tried to swerve out of the way but collided with the smaller vehicle after its driver failed to stop at a stop sign, the Virginia State Police said in a news release.

The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.
