Richard Altman, 45 years old, was excessively speeding on August 30, 2014 when he flipped his vehicle on Route 218 about 11 miles north of Edenton. At the time of the crash, Richard Altman had both of his sons in the truck.
9-year-old Briar James Altman died from crash injuries from getting thrown out of the truck. Briar’s 14 year-old brother spent time in the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries caused during the crash. The 14 year old son is now safely at home recuperating from his injuries and receiving grief counseling to cope with his brother’s death.
Richard Altman was flown from the scene to Sentara Norfold General Hospital for emergency care from the crash. Due to evidence taken at the crash, Altman was charged with DWI.
