Fatal Virginia crash death of Cameron Craig – Obituary
A tragic incident unfolded in Virginia as 20-year-old Cameron Craig from Saltville lost his life in a crash, as confirmed by the Virginia State Police on Friday.
The unfortunate event took place the day before when an Abingdon Fire Department truck was en route to a fire alarm call on Thursday evening, navigating a curve near Route 75. In a heart-wrenching turn of events, the truck veered off the right side of the road, colliding with a utility pole and subsequently overturning down an embankment.

Remarkably, the driver was released from the hospital on Thursday night, though the sorrowful loss of Cameron Craig remains a poignant reminder of the fragility of life.
