Five people were injured, at least two of them seriously, in a multi-vehicle accident near Deerfield Saturday afternoon, according to the Virginia State Police.

Trooper Timothy Simmons said a 1997 Toyota Tacoma driven by Sean Stanton, 33, of Monterey, was driving on Route 250 westbound Saturday around 2 p.m. when he came into a curve, ran off the right side of the road, and while overcorrecting his vehicle, collided into three motorcycles heading eastbound.

Doug Morris, fire chief of the Deerfield Valley Volunteer Fire Department, which along with Virginia State Police responded to the incident, said the accident took place about 1.5 miles beyond the intersection of Route 629 not far from Shenandoah Mountain near the Highland County-Augusta County line.
