Nathalie man faces charge in fatal crash

 A 21-year-old Nathalie man faces a charge of felony hit and run following a wreck that claimed the life of 61-year-old Randy Blake Anderson of Nathalie almost two weeks ago. 

Anthony Beadles was driving a 1997 Honda Civic on State Route 626 when he attempted to make a right turn on State Route 644 and struck the 2010 Kawasaki motorcycle operated by Anderson, according to an accident report filed by State Trooper D. T. Spencer.

Anderson was thrown approximately 15 feet upon impact and landed in a grassy area alongside the road, according to Spencer.

Anderson was airlifted to Roanoke Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 10:06 a.m. July 8, the state trooper added.

Spencer estimated damage to the motorcycle at $5,000 and $2,500 damage to the car driven by Beadles.
