Front Royal man dies after Frederick County crash

By Katie Demeria

A two-vehicle collision Monday night resulted in a Front Royal man's death.

Chad William Sneathen, 24, of Front Royal was driving a 1989 Dodge Pickup east on Route 127, Bloomery Pike, in Frederick County, according to Virginia State Police Sgt. F.L. Tyler.

Sneathen went to turn right on Route 522, North Frederick Pike, at around 11:30 p.m.

"When he did he failed to stop for a stop sign and pulled out in front of a southbound 2003 International Tractor Trailer," Tyler said.

When the two vehicles impacted, Tyler said Sneathen was partially ejected from his pickup. He was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the incident and died at the scene.

The tractor trailer was operated by a 48-year-old Middletown man. It hauled an empty milk tanker, according to Tyler.

After the impact the tractor trailer jack knifed and caused a road blockage until 3 a.m., he added.

Trooper C.L. Garrison investigated the incident, assisted by the Frederick County Sheriff's Office and Frederick County Fire and Rescue.

The cause and factors are still under investigation, Tyler said.
