NCL spoke with Bo Holland, RVCC’s center manager this morning. Carlos Ramos of Afton also works part time at the center. According to Virginia State Poiice he feel asleep at the wheel and crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic striking a car driven by William Shifflett of Afton. Bo tells us, “I went to see him at UVA –ER last night. Apparently he fell asleep on his way home from the night shift at DuPont. His van swerved and hit another car. The folks in the other car are fine. Carlos has a broken leg and either a broken or dislocated hip. They are not sure if he needs surgery, so I will have an update on that today,” she tells NCL by telephone Friday morning.

We’ll update more as we have it! And wish Mr. Ramos and the others involved in the accident well!
