Topping our news today…

On Tuesday at approximately 1:45PM, officers responded to the parking lot at Lowe’s in reference to a crash with injuries.  Upon arrival, contact was made with 5 total vehicles involved in the crash.  Based on the evidence on the roadway and the preliminary investigation, it appears a silver Nissan Altima, driven by Nygjiem Rayford-Roberts, was traveling East on Paul Huff when he exited the right side of the road and struck a Nissan Rogue, driven by Lilly Samples, that was stopped at the exit of Lowes turning left onto Paul Huff.  This caused the Rogue to travel down into the parking lot of Lowes and strike an unoccupied F150.  After striking the Rogue, the Altima traveled into the parking lot of Lowes and struck a Kia Soul and pushed the Kia Soul into a Monte Carlo, both unoccupied.  The driver of the Rogue was transported by BCEMS with non-life-threatening injuries.  The driver of the Altima was unresponsive and transported to Tennova Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.  The deceased male is from Delaware. contact was made with his mother, Esther Roberts, via phone and notifying her that the male is deceased.  It appears that the deceased male may have had a medical event prior to the crash that caused him to run off the road.  This crash is still under investigation.
