Crash claims life of Rocky Mount man

Friday, January 4, 2013

By K.A. WAGONER - Staff Writer

A Rocky Mount man was killed Wednesday afternoon when his pickup truck ran off the road and struck a tree at Coles Creek.

Homer Elmore Graham, 78, was traveling south on Coles Creek Road in a 1995 Ford F-150 when the pickup ran off the right side of the roadway and struck a mailbox, according to Sgt. Rob Carpentieri with the Virginia State Police.

Graham overcorrected, ran off the left side of the road and struck a tree, Carpentieri said.

Graham was not wearing a seat belt, Carpentieri said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The single-vehicle crash occurred about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday on Route 643 (Coles Creek Road) at the intersection of Route 841 (Calico Rock Road).
