Crash That Claimed Virginia Trooper Recalled

Soon after Trooper Adam Bowen was killed in a car crash Friday night in King George County, questions surfaced about how fast he was driving.

"When you're young and you want to be the best you can be at doing something, you run a little fast," Dobson said.

The Virginia State Police Accident Reconstruction Team is continuing to collect and analyze information gathered at the scene, said Sgt. Thomas Molnar. It has 30 days to finish its report. The team is analyzing the speed of both vehicles before the crash and the speed at the point of impact, Molnar said.
