PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Two children were hospitalized after a tractor-trailer crashed into three vehicles in the parking lot of a Dollar General in Disputanta Friday afternoon.

According to police, the driver of the tractor-trailer said he was traveling east in the 9700 block of County Drive (Route 460) when his brakes went out, which caused the truck to then drive off the roadway, across a grassy median and into the parking lot of a Dollar General where it struck three cars.

One of the cars had two children inside. They were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Prince George County Police are investigating and say no charges have been filed yet.
