Earlier this month, one person died in a single-vehicle auto accident in King George County. As reported at fredericksburg.com, the fatal car crash happened on Route 3 around 10am when a Ford F-250 pickup truck veered off the road and fell down an embankment. The pickup was towing a 37-foot camper, and both the truck and camper rolled and landed on their side.
The 64-year-old pickup driver died at the accident scene. His female passenger did not suffer injuries in the rollover accident. Both occupants wore seatbelts, according to Virginia State Police. At this point, investigators think the driver suffered a medical episode while driving and that may have led to the crash. The medical examiner will examine his body to determine the exact cause of death.
Police and an accident reconstruction team investigated the incident, which happened near Shiloh. The accident blocked traffic for about an hour while police cleared the scene and gathered evidence.
While no one can predict a medical episode, knowing what to do after a car accident can minimize some damages and improve your chances of a successful recovery.
