CAROLINE, VA (WWBT) - A North Carolina man has been identified as the victim in a fatal crash in Caroline County Wednesday afternoon. He was the passenger in a car that overturned after one of its tires blew out, according to Virginia State Police.
State Police said Lloyd A. Cardoza of Concord, NC, died at the scene of the crash on Interstate 95 South near mile marker 110.3. Cardoza, 75, was the front seat passenger in the 2002 Mercury Villager, and State Police said he was wearing his seat belt.
