Nelson County, VA

As we first reported this past Sunday July 22, 2012 a serious traffic accident on Route 151 at Tanbark Drive caused the death of one person that day. We began learning Tuesday night the news was probably not good for the husband of the person killed on Sunday. His wife Rita Beaulieu was killed at the scene.

An inquiry to NCL from television station WJAR NBC-10 in Rhode Island was trying to confirm that husband, 76 year old Alphonse Beaulieu had also passed away on Tuesday. They received unofficial confirmation that night. We worked to confirm the information but were unable to until Wednesday afternoon. VSP told CBS -19 there were no changes Tuesday evening, and our inquires to both Nelson Commonwealth Attorney Anthony Martin and Nelson Sheriff Brooks were not able to immediately confirm the information.

According to our media partners at CBS-19 in Charlottesville Wednesday:

The driver of the motorcycle involved in Sunday’s Nelson County crash passed away Tuesday afternoon (July 24) at UVa Hospital.
The crash remains under investigation and charges are still pending.
