Herman Parrish Sr., 62, was killed in a single-vehicle accident on Sunday morning near the intersection of State Route 49 and Middle School Road in Skipwith.

According to the report filed by Virginia State Trooper J.J. Kempo, around 9:30 Sunday morning Parrish’s 2003 Cadillac ran off the road to the left before striking a tree and a fence. Parrish died at the scene.

The exact cause of the accident is unknown, and no charges are pending.

I'm sorry that he passed away. I heard that some high school students are responsible and there was some road rage on their part that hurt Mr. Parrish.
