A 2009 Toyota Highlander was disabled on the left side of Interstate 295 (I-295) with a flat tire in Hanover County, Virginia (VA). A Ford F-350 service truck affiliated with AAA arrived to help. Unfortunately, that's when the chaos began.
The driver of a 2005 Toyota Camry veered off of I-295 and crashed into the Ford F-350. This caused the service truck to hit the driver of the Highlander. The driver was named Bobby Hadaway, according to the Mechanicsville Local. Sadly, he was killed as a result of this collision.
Carolyn Hadaway, a passenger in the Highlander, was also hit and suffered injuries, though she was fortunate enough to survive the wreck.
Our deepest condolences go out to Mrs. Hadaway. Losing someone you love is always difficult, but the heartache is made much worse when your loved one is taken from you suddenly and in a senseless accident.
Virginia State Police believe speed was a contributing factor to the Camry driver's inability to maintain control of their vehicle. Charges are pending against the driver, as of the date of this posting.
