A Jeffersonton woman and her 13-year-old passenger were seriously injured in a three-vehicle crash Friday afternoon on Rt. 29 in Fauquier County, according to a news release from the Virginia State Police.

A 2016 Freightliner tractor-trailer was traveling north on Rt. 29 at 2:45 p.m. Feb. 7 when it ran a red light at the intersection of Route 687 (Opal Road) and collided with a westbound 2015 GMC Acadia.
