Henrico County, VA — January 7, 2023, 32-year-old Yunior Morales Garcia died in a collision with a parked tractor-trailer on Ranco Road in Henrico County.
Authorities say the incident happened shortly before 8:00 p.m. on the 400 block of Ranco Road. Preliminary investigation suggests only that Morales Garcia was driving a Toyota Tacoma pickup along the roadway when he allegedly collided with an 18-wheeler that was parked in the area.

News sources don't seem to have much detail available about how and why this terrible event occurred, but a man lost his life and that's more than enough reason to follow up and get some real answers. I'm sure police will look more closely into things like why the big rig was parked along Ranco, where its driver was, whether it was legally parked, how fast the victim was traveling, weather/light/road conditions at the time, and many other details that could make a lot of difference in understanding how and why a family lost a loved one that night. Those folks deserve to know the whole story, so I hope authorities will be as diligent as needed to get it for them.
