Adam Blair Witt, 18, of Campbell County, was killed in a car accident on Lawyers Road at about 5:30 on Saturday morning.
The car’s driver was not old enough to have a license, said Sgt. Dave Cooper, the Virginia State Police’s public information officer.
“The driver said he was avoiding a deer, ran off the left side of the road and went down a 50-foot embankment,” Cooper said.
The 1992 Honda Civic overturned several times, throwing both Witt and the driver from the vehicle.
Cooper said he did not know whether the driver, whose injuries weren’t life-threatening, was taken to the hospital.
The accident happened about 1 mile east of the intersection of Lawyers and Waterlick roads in Campbell County.

Neither were wearing seatbelts, Cooper said.

State Police Officer T.A. Eckenrode is conducting the investigation. Cooper said that charges were pending.

Comments: We Love You Dearly Adam!

Adam and I grew up together, we met when we were 3 .. we did almost everything together as kids, in kindergarten he use to cry to come to my classroom because he would miss his mama and didnt wanna be alone. HaHe we use to laugh about that all the time. When we were a little older we use to do things that would get us in trouble so one day i cant remember what exactly we did but we jumped into this old toy box his mom had with all the toys in it and shut it. we got stuck, it seemed like hours before we could get the door open to it to get out!. We had alot of memories, altho the older we got we werent as close BUT he was always still my best friend, hes one of the only people who never turned their back on me. He was always smiling, his smiles and jokes always made my day. If i was ever having a bad day n when id randomly see adam out somewhere or in the hall ..there he was smiling n sayin "Heyyy!".
I love + miss him dearly!
Your always in my thoughts n prayers!
Love Always
