Accomack County, VA -- On September 9, 2019, Gemima Collins and Gary Dishman were injured in a crash between a van and a semi truck in Accomack County.

Authorities with the Virginia State Police say the incident happened around 5:10 a.m. on southbound Route 13, near the GoGlass auto glass shop. A state trooper witnessed Collins' Chrysler van pull out of a private driveway and then enter the path of a southbound Peterbilt 18-wheeler driven by Dishman. The truck jackknifed as Dishman tried to avoid the van, but then struck it anyway before running off the road and crashing into a tree.
