Virginia driver fatally strikes man mowing lawn

There are few happenings in life more devastating than the loss of one we love. There are no words that can adequately describe the resulting pain. While it is never easy to lose a loved one, it is particularly difficult when the loss is sudden, unexpected or even wrongful.

Recently, an employee of Patrick Henry Community College in Martinsville, Virginia, was operating a lawnmower when a driver struck the mower with a car. Tragically, the operator was pronounced dead at a local hospital due to injuries sustained from the impact of the fatal car accident.

Details on the incident are still forthcoming; it is not yet clear whether there were additional witnesses or what the exact circumstances surrounding the incident are. The Virginia State Police are currently investigating the crash.

The president of the school noted his condolences in a press release following the unexpected auto accident and resulting death. He emphasized the sadness with which the campus community received the distressing news.

A spokeswoman for the institution affirmed the school’s intent to review existing safety policies. Administration will then decide if any changes or upgrades are required to prevent another accident.

In Virginia, car accidents that involve a fatality often merit an investigation into the potential of a wrongful death claim. Once fully determined, the causes of the accident in question can help the victim’s family and their attorney pursue a meaningful path to compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, as well as possibly lend some sense of justice and closure.
