North resident dies in RTV accident

Walter Martens Strieter, 75, of North, died as a result of injuries he suffered in a two-vehicle accident early Saturday evening in Mathews County, according to Sgt. Michelle Anaya from the Virginia State Police.

At approximately 5:40 p.m., the VSP was called to the accident on Route 14, eastbound approximately 3/4 of a mile east of Route 3. A 2007 Toyota Tundra was traveling eastbound on Route 14, ran off the road right and struck a Kubota RTV (rough terrain vehicle), which was being operated by Strieter.

Strieter was taken to Riverside Walter Reed Hospital, where he later died of his injuries. The driver of the Toyota Tundra was charged with reckless driving.

This was the first traffic fatality in Mathews in 2020.
