One dead, another injured in Surry crash

Staff report

At least one person was injured and another was reportedly killed in a late morning wreck near Mount Airy.

Although details are sketchy at this time, a crash at the U.S. 52-Interstate 74 interchange south of Mount Airy brought traffic to a standstill when both northbound lanes were closed. Initially local Emergency Services officials called for two Aircare units to be flown in to take patients out, but later reports surfaced that a victim had died at the scene.

Traffic was reportedly backed up in the northbound lanes more than five miles at one point.

No additional information was immediately available, though this story will be updated as information become available.
