FANCY GAP — Carroll County authorities have launched a criminal investigation of a fatality on Interstate 77 that claimed the life of a local tow truck driver over Memorial Day weekend.
Russell Nelson, 75, owner of Russell’s Garage in Hillsville, was struck by a car and killed on May 25, while answering a call on I-77.
He had been in the towing business for more than 30 years, coworkers said, often responding to help others on the historically dangerous stretch of highway.
