Stout was transported to Shenandoah Memorial Hospital where he later died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash, Tyler said.

The driver of the motor home was Charles D. Collette, 75, of Dayton, Virginia. Tyler said Collette was charged with reckless driving.

No one in the motor home was injured.
