RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A deadly accident forces parts of Parham Road to shutdown for hours in Henrico County.

The accident is cleaned up and Parham Road is back open. Police are now investigating the accident that killed William Henry Carter, 23, of the 1300 block of Andover Road in Henrico County.

It happened just after 11 p.m. Wednesday night on Parham near September, by the West End Assembly of God Church.

Police said Carter was walking on the side of the road after his car broke down. He was then hit by a passing vehicle. That driver stopped and called 911.

Carter was killed 200 feet away from where his car broke down.  No charges are expected at this time, but the investigation ongoing.
