On November 9, 2023 at approximately 9:08 p.m., state police responded to a two vehicle commercial motor-vehicle crash on Route 460 (Windsor Boulevard) just west of the intersection of Route 639 (Winston Drive) within Isle of Wight County.
A preliminary investigation reveals that the driver of a 2020 Volvo tractor trailer, Leslie Paul-Moore Turner, was hauling an empty chassis trailer when his vehicle became disabled within the right lane of eastbound Route 460. Turner was still in his cab looking for his emergency triangles, when a second tractor trailer, a 2016 International, struck it from behind. The 2016 International, driven by George Herbert Brown, was hauling an enclosed trailer of water bottles, was also traveling eastbound on Route 460 in the right lane, when it struck the disabled tractor trailer. Brown was transported to Norfolk Sentara General with non-life threatening injuries. At this time neither drugs, alcohol nor speed , appear to be contributing factors. Crash is still under investigation at this time.
