JCCPD is releasing news

On Sep. 3, 2023, at approximately 4:10 p.m., James City County Police responded to a single-vehicle accident on Old Stage Road near the intersection of Fieldstone Pkwy. Upon arrival at the scene, the initial assessment determined that a 2021 Lincoln Navigator was traveling eastbound on Old Stage Road when it exited the roadway and crashed. Witness accounts indicate that the vehicle stopped unexpectedly before abruptly accelerating off the roadway into an embankment. The vehicle then overturned, eventually returning to the roadway. 

During the crash, an unrestrained passenger was ejected from the vehicle and subsequently killed. The driver, found in critical condition, was flown by LifeEvac to VCU Medical Center. The passenger, Nancy Roach, a 71-year-old resident of Weems, VA, was declared deceased at the scene by James City County Medics. Next of kin was promptly notified. 

It is unknown why the vehicle stopped and then exited the roadway; a medical emergency may have been a factor. The eastbound lanes of Old Stage Road were closed for approximately five hours. The crash is still under investigation at this time.
