A high speed chase involving a stolen car ended with one death tonight.

SUPER=03-Botetourt Co.;


It all started in Alleghany County when police clocked a speeder in excess of 87 miles per hour in a car reportedly stolen from Kentucky.
The pursuit lasted approximately six minutes with the suspect, 19-year old Timothy Stocks, striking at least one truck and a bridge in Alleghany County.
The state police decided to call off the chase as the car approached a dangerous intersection on Route 220 South near Gala in Botetourt County.
Stocks reportedly continued to flee when he slammed into two other cars including a gray Volkswagen head one.
The driver of the Volkswagen was killed.
One person in the other car was injured and transported to Roanoke Memorial Hospital with injuries described as not life threatening.

Griffin Pipe officials say it was a corporate decision to let the workers go with no advance warning.
The affected employees were part of Griffin's soil pipe division, which the company has shut down due to a declining market share.
Soil pipe is commonly used in household plumbing.
Griffin continues to be a major player in the pressure pipe market, making iron pipe for use in large sewer systems.
The laid- off employees represent less than twenty percent of the Lynchburg facility's workforce.
Some of them will be given special consideration to be rehired when jobs open up in other parts of the plant.
