Heavy damages in two-vehicle crash on Shiney Rock Road

SoVaNow.com / August 07, 2013


A 2001 GMC Sierra 1500 driven by 18-year-old Breanna Wade of Clarksville was badly damaged in a two-vehicle crash on Shiney Rock Road last Wednesday, July 31 around 7:00 p.m.

Virginia State Trooper J.A. Williamson reported that Wade’s vehicle ran off the road to the right, then over-corrected and ran off the road to the left and struck a post, sending the post through the back window of a 1998 Dodge Caravan driven by 54-year-old George Burwell, also of Clarksville. Burwell was turning down a private driveway at the time of the incident.

Before coming to a stop, Wade’s vehicle struck a tree and then overturned.

Wade and her passenger, 20-year-old Taylor Hew, were both transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of their injuries. Burwell, according to Williamson’s report, was uninjured.

Williamson estimated the damage to Wade’s vehicle at $10,000 and the damage to Burwell’s van at $500. Wade was cited for failure to maintain proper control of her vehicle.
