On Saturday June 9, 2018, the Virginia State Police investigated a two vehicle accident that resulted in a fatality.

The accident occurred at approximately 6:54 A.M., on Daugherty Road and Route 13, in Accomack County.

The driver of a 2009 Nissan Altima, Vincent M. Barrett, failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection of Daugherty Road and Route 13. Upon running the stop sign, a 2008 Ford tow truck, traveling northbound on Route 13, was unable to stop, and struck the Altima, pushing the vehicle into the median, and partially ejecting the driver.

Mr. Vincent McCrane Barrett, 38 years old, of the 4100 block of Holland lane, Cheriton, Virginia, was not wearing his seat belt and died at the scene from injuries sustained in the accident.

The driver of the tow truck suffered minor non-life threatening injuries.
