Richmond, VA—Police have identified the driver killed when his car ran off the road and slammed into a Richmond home Sunday.
Antany L. Turner, 29, of Richmond, was killed Sunday. The wreck happened at approximately 11:30 a.m. Sunday.
Turner was driving a four-door Buick on Hopkins Road near Pompey Spring Road when he lost control of the vehicle, police said.
The car crossed the eastbound lanes, collided with a parked car, flipped and then struck a home in the 2800 block of Hopkins Road.
