Local man dies after altercation

Thursday, August 28, 2014

A Collinsville man died Monday following a physical altercation Saturday evening with a driver at a go-kart track on Providence Church Road in Franklin County.

The Franklin News-Post reported that a verbal argument between mechanic Fred Baxter Lovette, 37, of Collinsville and an 18-year-old driver from Spencer escalated into a physical altercation, according to Lt. Justin Sigmon with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.

Lovette fell to the ground during the altercation and stopped breathing, Sigmon said, according to the News-Post. CPR was performed until paramedics arrived and took Lovette to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, according to the News-Post.

The investigation is ongoing.

Eyewitnesses to the altercation are asked to call Franklin County Investigator R.K. Toney at (540) 483-3062.
