Single vehicle crash ends in fatality
SoVaNow.com / April 10, 2014An 84 year old Alton man died at the scene of a single vehicle crash on Cluster Springs Road about one-half mile east of its intersection with Cedar Grove Road on Tuesday just after 11 a.m.
According to investigating Virginia State Trooper L. V. Pambid, Walter Thomas Trickey Jr. of Traynham Grove Road was the driver of a 1987 Chevrolet S10 which ran off the roadway to the right, striking a culvert. Trickey was declared dead at the scene although it was not determined at that time whether he died of injuries from the accident or whether he had suffered from other medical problems.
His body was sent to Richmond to the state medical examiner’s office and Pambid said on Wednesday that the medical examiner had notified him that Trickey’s death was caused by the accident. He was not wearing a seatbelt, Pambid said. The trooper declared the truck a total loss.
