Yorktown Car Wreck Leads to Death of Military Man

The driver of a 2006 Hyundai Tiberon was going about his day traveling down Battle Road in Yorktown, Virginia (VA) when he tried to make a left turn onto Route 17 and was hit by another vehicle. The driver of a 2002 Ford Ecoline ran a red light and slammed into the driver side of the Hyundai. The innocent Hyundai driver died on impact. He was only 38 years old and a member of the military, according to WAVY-TV10.   

Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the victim. It is so frustrating to read about tragic car wrecks that could have been prevented if the at-fault driver had been more cautious. Running a red light is virtually inexcusable and the consequences, as evident from this Yorktown car wreck, can be devastating.  

The family of the victim should consider speaking to a Virginia wrongful death attorney to discuss their legal options. If it turns out that the at-fault driver ran the red light because they were speeding, texting while driving, or some other reckless reason, punitive damages could potentially be awarded in a wrongful death claim.
