A two-vehicle crash in Craig County killed a man and sent two others to the hospital Saturday morning.

The crash happened on Virginia 611 shortly before noon, a half-mile west of Virginia 609.

A 1994 Chevrolet Silverado pickup was driving east at a high speed on Virginia 611 when it crossed the center line and struck a 2005 Ford Ranger pickup head-on in the westbound lane, according to a news release from Virginia State Police.
