Fatal Chesterfield, Virginia Logging Truck Accident

During the early morning hours of October 16, 2013, a part of Route 288 South in Chesterfield County was closed due to a fatal multi-vehicle accident.

Virginia State Police responded to an accident that occurred at 12:12 a.m. involving a tractor-trailer and two cars. It is being reported that the tractor trailer was transporting logs, most of which ended up scattered on the highway.

Early reports indicate that the driver of one of the vehicles was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have charged the 23 year old driver of the truck with reckless driving. The man was driving a logging truck that lost control and eventually overturned in the travel lanes. This led to the truck being struck by a Chevrolet Tahoe and Buick Century. Despite the fact that the drivers of both vehicles were wearing their seatbelts, the driver of the Tahoe was killed.

According to the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, 775 people were killed in vehicle related accidents in 2012. This was an increase of 1.44 percent from the previous year. Even more so, 67,004 people were injured in the same types of accidents. Once again, this was an increase (5.71 percent) from the previous year.
