Farewell, Friend

Our condolences to the family and acquaintances of 48-year-old NC tow truck driver Durward Whitehead, Sr. who died on Apr. 13. Here's the story from the Daily Press:

CHESAPEAKE — A North Carolina man died on Tuesday night after crashing his tow truck into a building in the Western Branch section of Chesapeake.

Durward Whitehead Sr., 48, of Elizabeth City, "appeared to have had a medical emergency which caused the accident," police spokeswoman Dorienne Boykin said.

Whitehead crashed his truck into East Coast Leisure, in the 3200 block of Western Branch Boulevard, around 7 p.m. Tuesday. He was transported to a local hospital where he died a short time later. The business was closed at the time of the accident, and no one else was injured.
