GLOUCESTER, Va. - Virginia State Police are investigating a three-vehicle crash that left a man dead and a woman and two children injured Friday evening.

According to police, officers were called to the scene of a crash on John Clayton Memorial Highway, west of Patriots Way, at 5:31 p.m.

Officers learned that a SUV traveling west on the highway stopped in the lane of travel to avoid vehicles from a private paving company that was working to pave a private driveway. Two of the paving company's vehicles were also stopped in the travel lane to assist with paving.

The SUV was struck from behind by a Toyota Tacoma, whose driver, 89-year-old Charles Miller, was killed on impact. The Tacoma then struck one of the vehicles stopped to assist with paving.

The SUV's driver, an adult woman, and her two children were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Charges are pending in this crash, and this is a developing story.
