Sumerduck man, 19, dies after morning accident

A 19-year-old Sumerduck man died Thursday after a traffic accident on Union Church Road southwest of Morrisville.

A 2008, four-door Chevy Malibu traveling in the southbound lane veered off the pavement to the right, then crossed over the road to the left and struck a tree.

The single-vehicle accident occurred at about 7 a.m., according to State Police Sgt. Les Tyler.

The driver, Edward Paul Davis Jr., died at 8:29 a.m. at Mary Washington Hospital as a result of injuries suffered in the accident, Sgt. Tyler said.

“Speed appeared to be a contributing factor” in the accident, he said.

Mr. Davis did not wear a seatbelt, the sergeant said.

“We urge the public to utilize their seatbelts and obey traffic laws,” Sgt. Tyler added.
