Woman Charged With Reckless Driving After Fatal Washington County Crash

Comments (0)

A woman has been charged with reckless driving after a fatal collision that took the life of an 81-year-old woman from Chilhowie in Washington County on May 13.

According to Virginia State Police spokesman Sgt. Michael Conroy, Margaret “Peggy” Kegley was trying to turn left onto Highway 19 from Route 700 in her 2005 Ford Taurus when she was struck by the 2003 Mercury Mountaineer driven by 23-year-old Wise resident Melinda Miller, who failed to stop for a red light. Conroy said that Miller’s vehicle hit the driver’s side door of Kegley’s vehicle.

Conroy said that Miller received transport to Johnston Memorial Hospital in Abingdon with non-life-threatening injuries. An infant in her vehicle was properly restrained and was not harmed in the crash.

Conroy said that Miller was charged with reckless driving and additional charges would be up to the Washington County Commonwealth’s Attorney.
