2nd unbelted victim of Saturday's crash dies
Albemarle police are urging all motorists to fasten their seatbelts after three unbuckled people died in the span of three days on Route 29 South. The latest death came Sunday, October 25, when Joshua Woolmer, a 13-year-old from Edgewood, Maryland was taken off life support after the accident that claimed another Edgewood 13-year-old, Destiny Greene, at the scene a day earlier. Police say that Greene's grandmother, 53-year-old Jo Ann Greene, was driving a Dodge van northbound on the road also known as Monacan Trail during heavy rain when it left the roadway and struck a tree in the median. They say that witnesses mentioned leaves on the roadway at the time of the crash, which hospitalized the grandmother and a fourth person in the van, 42-year-old Maryland resident Larry Daughtry, both of whom reportedly wore seatbelts. The double-fatal crash came just two days after 53-year-old North Garden farmer Kathryn Russell, reportedly unbelted, died in an accident in the same vicinity.
