Area man dies in crash

A Winchester man died Tuesday afternoon in a single vehicle crash on Glendobbin Road in Frederick County.

Virginia State Police Sgt. F.L. (Les) Tyler identified the victim as Billy G. Barb Sr., 72, of Winchester.

Tyler said Barb’s 1989 Ford pickup truck was traveling northbound on Glenn Dobbin Road, about seven-tenths of a mile from Apple Pie Ridge Road, when the truck ran off the right side of the road and hit a fence. Barb died at the scene, Tyler said.

Tyler said the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is investigating whether a medical problem may have contributed to the crash. Barb was wearing a seat belt and alcohol has been ruled out as a factor.

Trooper D.K. Sewell investigated the crash. The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office and fire and rescue crews from Clear Brook, Gainesboro and Round Hill assisted at the scene.
