Several people are in the hospital after a chain-reaction crash in Lynchburg.

It happened last night around 8:30 on route 460 near the Concord Turnpike.

Investigators say a car and truck crashed.

The driver of the truck pulled onto the shoulder, but police say John Reed, Junior's car was still in the road.

That's when they say, a mini-van hit Reed and his car.

Police say Erica Atkinson was the driver of that van.

Both Atkinson and Reed were taken to the hospital.

At last check, Reed was listed in critical condition.
