Williamsburg Man Dies After Tree Falls on Car

A Williamsburg man died after a tree fell on his moving vehicle on Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2022.

Williamsburg Fire Department responded to a motor-vehicle incident at 3:48 p.m. Wednesday on Jamestown Road near the intersection with Bayberry Lane. A 2018 Chevy Malibu was traveling northeast on Jamestown Road when a tree branch fell onto the car.

The driver, 42-year-old Hakeem A. Conway of Williamsburg, was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger reported minor injuries and was transported to Riverside Regional Medical Center for evaluation. No other passengers were in the vehicle.

National Weather Service reported high winds and lightning in the area at the time of the incident. The felled tree branch is likely weather-related, but the incident remains under investigation.
