The truck hit a 20096 Chrysler Crossfire car, being driven by 54-year-old Lois A. Peters of Salem, Ohio.  Her husband, 58-year-old Robert E. Peters was in the passenger seat.

State Police say three people are being treated at local hospitals, after a head-on crash in Giles County Thursday evening.

Troopers tell WSLS the crash took place around 6:14 p.m. on Route 100, about a mile north of the road's intersection with Route 42.

Investigators believe a vehicle driving north on Route 100 crossed the centerline, and hit another vehicle going southbound.  A couple from Ohio was in the car driving south, and a man was in the vehicle driving north.

EMTs airlifted two of the three people hurt in the crash to Roanoke Memorial Hospital.  State Police say the pair have life-threatening injuries.

Investigators are waiting to release the names of the people involved, until after their families are notified.

The investigation is ongoing.
