Nelson County, Virginia
Authorities are investigating a weekend fatality that happened just before midnight Saturday in Wingina. That’s a few miles east of Lovingston and Shipman in Eastern Nelson County, Virginia. “The car apparently veered off of the road and hit a tree, then burst into flames,” Sheriff David Brooks tells NCL. A body was found inside the car after the blaze was extinguished. The sheriff says the body was sent to Richmond for an autopsy and positive identification before the name is released to the public.
The exact cause of the accident is not known at this time.
