One vehicle overturned, and one person was transported to Roanoke Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. Two of the vehicles had to be towed.

The suspect was charged with disregarding a stop sign.

Police say weather was not a factor in the crash and there is not any information about injuries. It's not clear if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash.

Roanoke County Police say the road has since reopened.

There is no further information at this time as the investigation continues.
