Mechanicsville Man Dies after Hit by Tractor-Trailer in Fluvanna

Posted: Updated:

A Mechanicsville man is dead after a tractor-trailer slammed into the car he was driving in Fluvanna County.

It happened just before noon Saturday on Route 15 near West Bottom Road. State police say 51-year-old Chris Neagle was turning his Ford Focus onto a private drive when the tractor-trailer following behind him couldn't stop in time, swerved, and hit Neagle's car.

Neagle's wife, Cynthia, was a passenger in the car. She is at the University of Virginia Medical Center Saturday night with what are described as serious but not life-threatening injuries.

The truck driver, from Iowa, is charged with reckless driving.
