STEPHENSON-- A family died in a fiery Sunday morning crash on U.S. 11, according to state police.

The two-vehicle crash happened at about 11 a.m. near Interstate 81's exit 317 on U.S. 11, according to state police Sgt. F.L. "Les" Tyler.

A 1994 Jeep Cherokee, driven by Amanda Louise Roe, 31, of Stephenson, was struck from behind by a 1985 Chevrolet pickup while stopped at a red light in the northbound lane of U.S. 11, Tyler said.

The "force of impact" ruptured the Jeep Cherokee's fuel tank and the vehicle caught fire, he said.

Mark Kevin Roe, 49, Tyler Kevin Roe, 4, and Caleb Andrew Roe, 11, were passengers in the Cherokee.

All four died at the scene "as a result of the impact and the fire," Tyler said.

The pickup was driven by Steven Andrew Boyce, 20, of Winchester. Boyce was transported to Winchester Medical Center.

Tyler did not know the extent of Boyce's injuries.

Boyce has been charged with driving under the influence, one count of involuntary manslaughter and underage possession of alcohol, Tyler said.

The crash is being investigated by Trooper M.C. Gremillion.

The Virginia State Police and its reconstruction team, the Frederick County Sheriff's Office and local fire and rescue all responded to the scene, Tyler said.

Northbound lanes of U.S. 11 were being reopened to traffic by 5 p.m., he said.
