He was rushed to Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center, where he died from his injuries. At this time, the incident is under investigation.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to the family of Joseph Terrell France.

Car Accidents in Virginia

Being part of a crash can deeply affect a person's life, especially when it leads to injuries. Every year, Virginia witnesses over 800 lives lost in motor vehicle accidents, with another 65,000 individuals sustaining injuries. These injuries often bring significant limitations to daily routines. While car accidents can happen due to various reasons, the main causes of fatal crashes in our state are:

  2. Alcohol use: Involved in over 29.4% of fatal crashes.

  3. Speeding: A factor in more than 37.7% of fatal accidents.
