A 72 year old South Boston man, Murray S. Chipps, became the second highway fatality in Halifax County on Tuesday morning when he died in a single vehicle crash on State Route 626.

Chipps was the driver of a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1600 which veered off the left side of State Route 626 about seven-tenths mile north of its intersection with State Route 621.

The truck struck a tree in the 8:10 a.m. crash and was declared a total loss.

In a report filed by investigating Virginia State Trooper P. W. Leath, Chipps was wearing his seat belt, but was declared dead at the scene of the accident.

In an earlier crash reported on Saturday, Aug. 3 at 11:22 p.m. 29 year old Emily R. Sanders of Alton was charged with reckless driving, failure to maintain control of her vehicle when she veered to the right of the roadway, striking a tree. She was injured and transported and damages to the 2005 Mazda 6 she was operating were estimated at $2,500.

The accident which occurred on State Route 706, about two miles west of its intersection with State Route 706, was investigated by Virginia State Trooper D. T. Spencer.
