VIRGINIA BEACH — City police have identified a woman who died after a motorcycle accident on a rural stretch of Princess Anne Road as Carole M. McCullough, a 56-year-old Virginia Beach resident.
McCullough was the operator of a motorcycle that crashed on the 400 block of Princess Anne Road on Sunday, April 11, according to a statement released by Master Police Officer Linda Kuehn, a department spokesperson.
Public safety officials responded after a crash was reported at 3:35 p.m. Virginia Beach Emergency Medical Services personnel took McCullough to a hospital, where she died from her injuries, according to a police statement.
A preliminary investigation showed McCullough was traveling north and lost control of the motorcycle at a curve.
The case is being investigated by the Virginia Beach Police Department Fatal Crash Team. Kuehn, via email on Wednesday, April 14, wrote that no additional information on the accident is available at this time.
In an obituary, McCullough is remembered for her love of family and service to the community. She is survived by her husband, Kenneth G. McCullough, and two daughters, Aja and Paige McCullough. She is also survived by her brother, Chris, and two sisters, Elizabeth and Holly, and nieces and nephews.
“Carole met her husband, Ken, while working at Dollar Tree’s distribution center, and, when they met, they knew they found forever,” her obituary says. “She spent most of her years staying home to care for their household and raise their two daughters.”
McCullough also volunteered extensively with the city schools, Girl Scouts of America and the Khedive Shrine Center.
“All that met her loved her,” her obituary says. “She was the life of every party and a light in every room. She left us far too soon and will be dearly missed.”
