Norfolk Car Accident Injury Lawyer Report – Virginia Man is Killed in Collision with a Sheriff’s Deputy
A Virginia (VA) man has died in a collision with a car driven by a sheriff’s deputy.
Andrew Eanes, 63, of Callands was killed on May 21, 2012 when he pulled in front of an oncoming Pittsylvania County, VA sheriff’s deputy on U.S. 29 north of Chatham, Star-Tribune reported.
The accident occurred in the northbound lanes across from Chatham Medical Center.
The deputy, 30-year-old T. R. Moore Jr., and a sheriff’s office intern, Monica Kennedy, 20, were not seriously hurt in the crash, according to the Star-Tribune.
State police said Mr. Eanes was driving a Ford Ranger pickup truck and was crossing the highway to turn south when he “pulled into the path of the deputy’s 2007 Ford Crown Victoria.” The Star-Tribune reported.
“Neither saw the other,” said Virginia State Police Sgt. M.C. Davis. State police said the deputy didn’t have time to brake before he hit the pickup. No charges were filed in this crash.
