Two Roanoke County Residents Accused Of DUI After Fatal Work Zone Crash

Comments (0)
Two residents of Roanoke County have been accused of driving under the influence after a chain-reaction crash at a road construction work zone that resulted in the death of a paving company employee.

Early on Wednesday, February 20, 46-year-old Richard Sloan was killed while working in the Cave Spring area with S.R. Draper Paving Company.

According to Roanoke County police, 42-year-old Tracie Nininger was being held without bond on charges of involuntary manslaughter and driving under the influence. Another driver, 32-year-old Jeffrey Dupree was released on bond after being charged with DUI.

According to police, Nininger was driving in front of Dupree and her Hummer3 struck a backhoe that was on the side of the road. Dupree's SUV then struck Nininger's vehicle from behind.

Slone died as the result of being struck by a plow that was attached to the backhoe.
