HILLSVILLE — Black ice on U.S 58 claimed a long-time dairy delivery driver while on his rounds early Monday, Virginia State Police troopers say.
Guy Horton, 70, of Woodlawn, driving a delivery truck owned by H&S Dairy Distributors of Mount Airy, N.C., lost control of the vehicle on a glaze of black ice in a curve near Princess Drive at about 6:15 a.m., according to First Sgt. Mike Musser.
Police believe that Horton was heading to businesses in Vesta to drop off supplies.
The weather conditions, which also included fog, contributed to the accident.
