Walter D. Potter, 63, has been arrested and charged with reckless driving in connection to the fatal Hanover accident that left one driver dead and two children fighting for their lives.

Four cars collided at North Lakeridge Parkway on Tuesday, forcing authorities to close the road for hours.

The crash happened shortly before 3 p.m. Witnesses said a blue Honda stopped to turn left when a dark grey Ford slammed into it from behind.

Bystanders told 8News that’s when a man and two kids were thrown from the Honda. A white SUV, traveling the other direction, swerved to avoid the crash and ended up in a ditch.

Deputies tell 8News nobody in any of the other vehicles were seriously injured in the wreck.

Investigators request that anyone who may have additional information about this crash contact the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office at (804) 365-6140. The investigation is ongoing and no further details are being released.
