He crashed into a tree near the intersection of Mill Road and Kindlewood Trail. He was the sole occupant of the vehicle. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
This morning we heard a fatal accident on the scanner. We missed the location.
RS fan contacted us and said there was a scene near Perryville and Mill. That would sound about right for the location, via the scanner frequency.
We can not yet confirm that is the location yet. We can confirm there is a fatal accident on the scanner, but not the location. They said code it as a “traffic death” And the RS fan said there is a scene near this location.
This is still developing and we will post updates as they become available.
Keep up the good work SEE IT, SNAP IT, SEND IT
