The accident occurred at about 11:30, and backed up holiday traffic for miles on the northbound side of the road.
The wreck involved a motorcycle towing a small trailer. State police say one tire of the trailer went off the road, throwing the bike out of control.
The driver and his female friend were thrown off the bike at about 65 miles an hour. They were both airlifted to Roanoke Memorial Hospital, where they're both in serious condition.
Police have not released the names of the riders, but say the driver was a retired police officer from the Tidewater area.
