Medical Examiner: Truck Driver's Heart Condition Not a Factor in Fatal Crash
The accident occurred on I-64 between the Jefferson Avenue and Victory Boulevard in Newport News. The other tow truck driver killed in the accident, Warren Bills, was stopped on the side of the road, responding to a disabled vehicle on the shoulder of the road. The crash caused Patrick's truck to flip over and skid over 400 feet on its roof. Sources say the two drivers knew one another.
As a Virginia truck accident attorney, I've seen the devastation these types of car crashes can cause. You can never really prepare yourself for a wreck of this magnitude.
Our condolences go out to the family and friends of the victims. Tow truck drivers provide an important but frequently dangerous duty to their communities. Though the investigation of this crash is still ongoing, both families deserve to know what happened that day and why the accident occurred.
