Virginia State Police is asking for the public’s help as they continue to investigate a Russell County crash that killed two people. 

VSP is seeking information from anyone who may have seen the dark-colored Ford F-350 flatbed work truck traveling on the wrong side of the road on May 3 (pictured above). The wrong-way driver was spotted on Route 19 around 11:45 p.m. near the Washington and Russell County lines.

According to investigators, Treymane M. Ferguson, 51, of Ruther Glen, Va., was driving the truck that night. He crested a hill and hit another car head-on. 

There was a driver and three passengers in the car that Ferguson hit. All four were from Rural Hall, NC. Two passengers did not survive the crash.

Ferguson is being held without bond on a charge of reckless driving and a charge of obstruction of justice for refusing a warrant for a blood sample to be taken as part of the ongoing investigation, according to state police.
