Norfolk Accident Injury Lawyer Report – Speed a Factor in Deadly Shenandoah, VA Crash
A 24-year-old woman from Orange County in Virginia died in an accident on May 8, 2012 after crossing a center line and hitting a truck, say police.
The accident occurred in Shenandoah County, said Corinne Geller, spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police. Just before midday on May 8, the two vehicles collided on U.S. 211 near Run Away Lane near New Market, Fredericksburg.com reported.
Police say a 2008 Kia Spectra heading west driven by Amber L. Dove of Rhoadesville, VA crossed the center line and hit a three-axle feed truck head on.
Dove was taken to Rockingham Memorial Hospital in Harrisonburg, where she died later. The thoughts of our experienced Virginia car accident injury lawyers are with her family.
The 24-year-old truck driver was not injured in the wreck
The accident is still being investigated. Geller said speed “has been determined to have been a factor in the crash.”
Speed is one of the biggest killers on the road of Virginia. It can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles and cross over center lines, with deadly consequences either for themselves or another driver.
Sadly excess speed may have caused this crash.
