A single-vehicle accident on Riverside Drive near Sugar Shack Road at 4 p.m. on Thursday left one fatality, according to Virginia State Police Sgt. Mike Musser and Trooper C.W. Keesling, who is in charge of the investigation.
The vehicle, a white 1995 Pontiac Grand Am driven by Michael Ray Gallimore, 61, of Winston-Salem, N.C., left the right side of the road and hit a tree while airborne, then went down an embankment, hitting several boulders on the way before landing in a creek bed. Gallimore was partly ejected from the vehicle.
