Witnesses who drove by the wreck say the van was unrecognizable.

“By the time we got through, we were already detoured and the van was already laying where it was laying at, against the tree and everything and it didn’t look good at all,” Georgette Pennington said.

The road was closed down for several hours, it is back open.

State police are still investigating what caused the crash.
