Hanover, Va. – On Friday, April 15, 2022, at approximately 7:20 p.m., deputies responded to the intersection of Mountain Road (Route 33) and Rosmarin Road for a motor vehicle crash.
The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2003 Dodge pick-up truck was traveling eastbound on Mountain Road towing a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer with a drawbar attachment. As the Dodge pick-up approached Rosmarin Road, it appears the 2002 Chevy Trailblazer became unstable forcing both vehicles off the roadway. The Dodge pick-up truck collided head on into a tree. The Chevy Trailblazer became disconnected and also collided with a tree.
Both the driver and passenger of the 2003 Dodge pick-up truck, Chauncey Eugene Walker, Jr., 25, Richmond, and Robert William Bailey, 52, Culpeper, were pronounced deceased at the scene. There were no other vehicles involved in this crash.
Investigators are still collecting information.
We extend our deepest condolences to the families of Chauncey Walker, Jr. and Robert Bailey during this difficult time.
