Louisa man killed in Robious Road accident

A multiple-vehicle crash on Robious Road last week claimed the life of a Louisa County man. The Chesterfield County Police Department said William V. Roto, 45, was traveling west on Robious Road near Robindale Road around 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 25 when his tow truck drifted to the left, crossed the concrete median and struck three vehicles waiting to turn left onto Robindale. Roto’s truck then swerved back to the right, ran off the road and hit a tree near Knollwood Drive.

Roto, of the 1800 block of Kents Mill Road in Louisa, died at the scene of the crash. Drivers of two of the three vehicles the truck hit were taken to Chippenham Hospital with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening. Police were continuing their investigation, but preliminary indications were that neither alcohol nor speed was a factor.
