AUGUSTA COUNTY -- According to the Augusta County Sheriff's Office, multiple lanes are closed near mile marker 217 on Interstate 81 due to a traffic crash involving a state trooper.

A representative with the sheriff's office said a car was traveling down I-81 at 100 mph because the brakes on the car failed. Two people jumped out of the car and got minor scratches. That left the car unoccupied, so a trooper purposely wrecked his car to stop the car from going down the interstate.

The trooper is fine.
