Tragedy struck a few miles south of Rocky Mount when two women were killed in a single-vehicle accident last weekend.
The two women, Bridgette Teasley Russell, 49, and Sheila Maye Dozier, 50, were passengers in a Buick going north on 220, when the driver lost control of the vehicle. Mary McKethan Harper, 54, drove the car off of the highway where it then struck a concrete barrier. While Russell, traveling in the front, was wearing a seat belt, Dozier was not. According to Sgt. Rob Carpentieri of the Virginia State Police, both women were pronounced dead on the scene.
The driver was taken to Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. She has, however, been charged with reckless driving at this time. While Master Trooper Tim Harris is still investigating the case, it is possible that Harper could receive additional charges later on.
“She was very professional, kept me completely involved and updated with everything. Awesome job done.”
“Maria stayed on top of everything with updates, etc.”
“Very good communication throughout my case. Brenda paid great attention to my case and kept me up to date.”
“Both attorneys involved were very informative and walked me through my case every setp of the way. They answered any questions and concerns I had whenever they cam up. I was very nervous and skeptical at the beginning but that quickly changed.”
