ALERT: Woman killed in yard, murder suspect on the run

Makeshift memorial grows for Hanover mom killed running

HANOVER COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) — A makeshift memorial is growing for a Hanover mother killed by a car while she was out on a run.

Sneakers were stacked to nearly the top of the street sign in tribute to Meg Menzies Thursday.

Deputies said Menzies was running in a Hanover County neighborhood earlier this month, when doctor Michael Carlson’s SUV ran into her.

Carlson was charged with driving under the influence and involuntary manslaughter.

Search warrants obtained by CBS 6 News revealed investigators are also looking into whether Carlson was texting at the time of the crash.
