By AMANDA BUCK - Bulletin Staff Writer

A retired Martinsville businessman who was involved in a two-vehicle accident Wednesday afternoon died hours later at Memorial Hospital in Martinsville, but police were not certain whether his death was related to the wreck.

Raymond Duke Ferrell, 88, who once ran McCollum-Ferrell shoe store uptown, died at 6:58 p.m. Wednesday, said city spokesman Scott Coleman. That was about four hours after Ferrell was involved in an accident at the intersection of Brookdale Road and Sprucedale Drive in Martinsville.

An autopsy will be conducted to determine Ferrell's cause of death, Coleman said.

The driver of the other vehicle, 29-year-old Lawanda Rae Robertson of Axton, was charged with failure to yield the right of way in connection with the accident, which happened at the intersection of Brookdale Road and Sprucedale Drive in Martinsville.
