Passenger Killed in Bedford County Accident

Posted on Nov 28, 2013

A car carrying two people was traveling northbound on Route 715 when the driver went around a curve too fast and ran off the side of the road. The car wound up crashing into a tree, according to wset.com.

The passenger in the vehicle, Evan Patrick Nichols (named in the wset.com article), died at the scene of the wreck. He was only 21 years old.

Our deepest condolences go out to the Nichols family. Losing someone you love is never easy, but the pain is made even worse when your loved one is taken from you in a sudden and unexpected manner. It’s also tough when the victim is so young and had their whole life ahead of them.

The driver who decided to violate the speed limit while going around the curve was charged with driving while intoxicated and may face other charges.
