The first man who stopped to help was Herbert Vial (above), a retired volunteer rescue squad member from Mineral in Louisa County.  Heather Harris (right) is recovering at her home in Fork Union. Photos by Tricia JohnsonShe was up at 3 a.m. to head to work, as always. Heather Harris of Fork Union works two jobs – one at the UPS Charlottesville Center loading trucks, and the other at Michie Tavern waiting tables. When her shift ended at UPS around 8:30 a.m. on March 25, she drove to a dentist appointment at Lake Monticello – after which she planned to work a shift at Michie Tavern.
But she didn’t get there. On Rt. 600 just about a mile south of 616, around 9:15 a.m., Harris was hit head-on by a car driven by a Palmyra woman.
Virginia State Trooper Garret Watkins, who investigated the accident, said the road “was wet but was not snow covered,” and while neither speed nor distraction appeared to play a role in the accident, the Palmyra woman – whose car was in the wrong lane–was charged with reckless driving. Trooper Watkins added that both Harris’s 2009 Chevy Malibu and the other car were a total loss. He characterized the accident as “serious.”
