A Death in my Family

Death comes suddenly.

I woke up this morning to a call from my Sister’s partner in Virginia.

My Sister had an accident on her way to work and was killed in a
collision with a truck.

JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. – Authorities are investigating a fatal crash that occurred Thursday morning in James City County.

The crash occurred around 7:45 a.m. on Industrial Boulevard and Richmond Road and involved a tractor-trailer and a vehicle.

Preliminary investigation has revealed that a 2003 Ford Taurus driven by 59-year-old Sandra Sarah Dunaway, was headed eastbound on Richmond Road. In the area of Industrial Boulevard, the Taurus crossed over the media and hit a tractor-trailer head on.

The tractor-trailer was driven by a 40-year-old Yorktown man.

Dunaway, who was believed to not be wearing her seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene. The tractor-trailer driver was not injured.

This is one of the few photographs I have of us as children.
