Dayton Veterans Administration Dental Whistleblower Killed in Car Accident

Interesting and I wonder if this is a coincidence or not?
The dental lab technician who helped call attention to poor infection-control practices at the Dayton VA Medical Center last year was killed in a one-car accident in Beavercreek Saturday morning.

 According to the story in today's Dayton Daily News , Wallace “Ray” Perdue of Fairborn was killed after the car he was driving left the road and struck a tree in the 2200 block of Kemp Road, just west of Beaver Valley Road, at 11:54 a.m. Saturday.

He was 45. Police said he died at the scene.

His wife, Sherry Perdue, was also in the car.

She was examined at Miami Valley Hospital after the crash, then discharged on Saturday.

She and Ray Perdue , along with a third whistle-blower, told VA inspectors in the summer of 2010 about dentist Dr. Dwight Pemberton’s failure to sterilize instruments and change latex gloves between seeing patients.
