One killed in Beltline ramp wreck

Posted June 24, 2008

— One person was killed Tuesday afternoon when a car overturned on the ramp leading from the outer loop of the Interstate 440 Beltline to westbound Wade Avenue, police said.

Police withheld the victim's identity.

The ramp was blocked for about an hour as police investigated the wreck, and traffic flow was limited through much of the afternoon rush hour.

    i was driving on the beltline right after it happened and it took me a few seconds to realize it was even a car. it looked like it had been through a compactor... i hope the other guy is going to be okay!
