Jacksonville driver dead after hitting Virginia house
GALAX, Va. – State police said a tractor-trailer ran off the road Friday morning, hit a house near Galax, Virginia, and the driver died, WSLS reports.
The driver -- who was identified as Johnathan D. Harding, 40, of Jacksonville, Florida -- died, although it's not clear if he died as a result of the crash or if he had a medical emergency before the crash, as the tractor-trailer's brakes were not used, according to police.
The tractor-trailer ran off Route 58 West about 10 a.m.
No one was living in the home at the time of the crash.
A neighbor, David Hancock, who lives two doors down, said his home was hit by a Pepsi truck about two years ago. This is the third time a home on this block has been hit by a vehicle.
