An unfortunate accident yesterday afternoon has left a 39 year- old Valley man dead.

Virginia State Police say Michael Spradlin was sledding with his family on Route 811 in Augusta Springs yesterday when his sled took him into the path of traffic.

Spradlin was run over by a car and died at the scene.

State Police say no charges will be filed against the driver who struck Spradlin.

In December, 20-year-old Gracebrooks was killed after striking a goal post with her head while sledding at Marybaldwin College in Staunton.
