An Accomack County man is dead following an accident on Route 13 Thursday night.
According to Virginia State Police, preliminary investigations have reveled that the driver of a 2010 Nissan Frontier pick up truck, 43 year old Eduardo Marvin Simon-Gabriel, failed to yield the right of way as he was attempting to cross through the intersection of Route 13 and Daugherty Road. Simon-Gabriel crossed into the path of a 2002 Freightliner tractor trailer, and was struck on the passenger side of the vehicle. The impact caused both vehicles to run off the roadway and partially eject Simon-Gabriel, who was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
The driver of the tractor trailer was uninjured.
Notification has been made to the family of Eduardo Marvin Simon-Gabriel, of the 23000 block of Jersey Street in Greenbush.
