Charlotte man charged in head-on collision

SoVaNow.com / March 15, 2017
A Drakes Branch man faces multiple charges after a head-on collision on Highway 92 near Chase City on Friday.

Quincy Louis Thompson, III of Drakes Branch is being held at Meherrin River Regional Jail on three charges of misdemeanor assault, one count of driving under the influence, one count of destruction of property, one count of attempted carjacking, one count of failure to carry a license, one count of failure to obey highway markings and one count of driving an uninsured vehicle.

The arrest occurred Friday after Thompson crashed his vehicle into a car driven by Maye Jordan.

According to police reports, Jordan was heading west on Highway 92 near Chase City, and as he rounded a curve in the road, he came upon Thompson heading at him in the wrong lane. Jordan was unable to swerve out of the way in time to avoid impact. The two cars collided.

Despite the extensive damage to both vehicles, neither Thompson nor Jordan nor his passenger, Chandler Jordan, were seriously injured. State Police reported that both vehicles were totaled.

Thompson was originally scheduled to appear in court on March 13, but his hearing date was continued until April 25.
