Norfolk Car Accident Injury Attorney Report – Woman is Killed in Winchester, VA Car Crash
When a car or truck crosses a center line the consequences can be deadly. In the Winchester area of Virginia, the crossing of a line by a Ford Pickup truck led to the death of a woman.
The accident took place in the area of Valley Avenue and Jubal Early Drive at about 10:30 a.m. on July 12, 2012.
According to NVDaily.com, the 2004 Ford pickup hit a 2008 Nissan mini-van in the driver’s front side area. The pickup truck, driven by Leslie M. Wylie, 30, of Knoxville, TN, was heading east on Jubal Early Drive when her vehicle “ crossed the median strip and hit the mini-van as it was traveling west on Jubal Early,” reported NVDaily.com.
This is the second serious accident of this kind our experienced Norfolk, VA car accident injury attorneys have reported on in the last few days.

Although no charges had been brought in the Winchester crash at the time of the report, there seems to be a clear case for a wrongful death action where a driver crosses a center line.
