Man Charged With DUI In Brother's Death

Comments (0)

A man from Pittsylvania County has been charged with driving under the influence following a fatal U.S. 29 accident on February 22 that resulted in the death of his brother.

Virginia State Police said that 45-year-old Dennie Simms, the driver, 43-year-old Timmy Simms, his brother, and 25-year-old Michael Grogan, another passenger, were southbound on U.S. 29 in a 1995 Ford Ranger pick-up on the west side of the road when the vehicle overturned just north of U.S. 360 at around 7:00 p.m.

The Simms brothers received transport to Danville Regional Medical Center. State police say Timmy Simms was pronounced dead at the hospital as a result of the injuries he suffered in the crash. Dennie Simms and Grogan received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police charged Dennie Simms with DUI and the accident remains under investigation.
