Two people died and another suffered life threatening injuries as result of a crash between a tractor trailer and a car Monday on Route 13 in Oak Hall.

The crash was reported around 4 p.m. and shut down all four lanes of the highway for an extended period.

Preliminary investigation shows a 2016 Freightliner tractor trailer, driven by Barry C. Parker Jr., 31, of Pungoteague, was traveling south on Route 13, approaching the intersection with Withams Road, when a 2006 Ford Taurus driven by Bonnie Rena Dennis, 61, of Chincoteague, failed to yield the right of way at the stop sign and went into the path of the tractor trailer, according to a Virginia State Police spokesperson.

The car was t-boned and both vehicles crossed over the median after the crash, according to spokesperson Sgt. Michelle Anaya.

The Ford continued off the roadway and struck a tree on private property, Anaya said.
Dennis died upon impact.

The Ford’s front seat passenger, Kevin Lethane Nock, 45, and his wife, Tyquesha Dominique Nock, 21, of New Church, who was riding in the back seat, were airlifted from the scene by Maryland State Police helicopter and were taken to Tidal Health Peninsula Regional Hospital in Salisbury, Md.
