*Front Royal man draws jail term in deadly crash

By Alex Bridges -- abridges@nvdaily.com

WINCHESTER -- A Front Royal man must serve a year in jail for fleeing the scene of a single-vehicle crash in September that killed a passenger.

Kevin Wayne Beahm, 35, of 367 W. 10th St., pleaded guilty Thursday in Frederick County Circuit Court to committing felony hit and run. Beahm also pleaded guilty to related misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and driving on a suspended license.

Retired Judge Ben Kendrick sentenced Beahm to 10 years with nine years suspended for the hit and run. Beahm received 90 days in jail for reckless driving, all suspended, and 12 months with six months suspended for driving on a suspended license.

Kendrick ordered Beahm to serve two years of supervised probation and pay a $250 fine for hit and run.

Authorities accused Beahm of driving a Toyota pickup on Va. 277 on Sept. 21 which veered off the road and flipped. The passenger was ejected and witnesses said a person matching Beahm's description crawled out of the driver's side and fled the scene on foot.

A Virginia State Police trooper located Beahm later and charged him in the crash.
Authorities sought no charges against Beahm related to the death.
