Spotsylvania mom dies in morning crash
A Spotsylvania County woman was killed early today in a single-vehicle accident on State Route 3 in the county, police said.
Nicole Weaver, 42, was pronounced dead at the scene, which is about a quarter mile east of Orange Plank Road (State Route 621).
According to Sheriff’s Lt. James Bibens, Weaver was heading west in a 2001 Volvo station wagon when her car left the road and entered the median. The vehicle struck numerous trees and rolled over several times.
Bibens said Weaver was not wearing a seatbelt but was not ejected from the vehicle. Speed and alcohol were factors in the crash, police said.
Among Weaver’s survivors are two daughters, ages 6 and 11.
