A Chatham man was killed Saturday afternoon in Redwood when the vehicle he was operating struck an oncoming pickup truck.
Richard Davis Jr., 57, was traveling west on Route 40 in a 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier when the sedan crossed the center line and struck an eastbound 1993 Toyota pickup truck, according to Sgt. Rob Carpentieri with the Virginia State Police (VSP).
Davis was wearing a seat belt, Carpentieri said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Toyota, Timothy Warren Thompson, 42, of Glade Hill, was airlifted to Roanoke Memorial Hospital, where he is listed in "good" condition, according to Carilion spokesman Eric Earnhart.
