Hanover County Man Dies In A Fluvanna County Collision

A Hanover County man has become our region’s latest highway fatality. State Police say 51-year-old Chris R. Neagle of Mechanicsville died following a Saturday collision in Fluvanna County. Neagle was killed after a tractor-trailer hit his car, and his passenger was sent to the University of Virginia Medical Center. Police say 51-year-old Cynthia Neagle has injuries that are serious, but are not life-threatening. Investigators say the couple stopped to turn into a private drive, and the tractor-trailer operator could not avoid hitting their car. The tractor-trailer driver was not injured when the vehicles collided shortly before noon Saturday on Route 15 in the Fork Union area. Police have charged 49-year-old Donald W. Sly of Iowa with reckless driving.
