ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — A young mother is dead and her daughter and boyfriend are seriously hurt after getting hit by a car on Wednesday evening.
Erika Bailey, 26, was on Nocks Landing Road teaching her 6-year-old daughter how to ride a bike when she was hit from behind by an SUV. She was killed on impact. Her boyfriend, Duane Turner, and her daughter were seriously hurt and transferred to the hospital.
“Due to the complexity of the fatal investigation, crash location, and the location of the injured parties, the investigation of the crash has taken much longer, a Virginia State Police spokesperson said in a statement.
Neighbor Paul Tatem said Nocks Landing Road was shut down for hours as the investigation took place.
“It was one of the strangest things I’ve seen out here,” Tatem said.
“I feel sorry for the family,” he said.
So far, no charges have been filed in the case, which is currently being reviewed by the Commonwealth’s Attorney.
