Stanley Fire Chief Terry A. Pettit reported the Stanley Fire Department (SFD) responded to a two-vehicle MVA with entrapment on US Hwy 340 Business, near the intersection of Alan’s Road on July 8, 2023, at 2230. The accident resulted in one fatality, who was pronounced at the scene; six others were injured, and all were transported to Page Memorial Hospital. The vehicle, which the deceased was in, caught fire on impact and spread quickly due to leaking fuel. He was trapped until being pulled out by two Page County Sheriff’s Department deputies, a Virginia State Police Trooper and SFD Lieutenant Jason Pettit who arrived on the scene shortly after it happened. Chief Pettit also said that units from the Page County EMS and Stanley Rescue Squad also responded.
