Injured students on the mend after Sunday crash

SoVaNow.com / May 08, 2014
Two Halifax County High School seniors who were seriously injured in a single-vehicle crash on Sunday afternoon have both undergone surgery at Duke Medical Center this week.

According to the latest available information, 18 year old Meghan Weatherford, the driver the 2008 Ford Mustang, was listed in good condition although suffering from broken bones. Her 18 year old passenger, Jessica Nicole Terry of Vernon Hill, has been upgraded from critical to serious condition.

The mishap occurred at 3:55 p.m. on State Route 658. about seven-tenths mile west of its intersection with State Route 706. According to police reports, Weatherford lost control of the car which went off the right side of the roadway. The vehicle then swerved back as she attempted to correct it, but went back off the right side over an embankment, overturning multiple times.

Both the driver and passenger were ejected from the vehicle.

Charges in the crash are pending. Investigating Virginia State Trooper D.H. Hess estimated damages to the Mustang at $7,500.

On Friday, May 2, a 70 year old Halifax woman suffered serious injury in a single vehicle crash. The mishap occurred around 1 p.m.

Myrta Reeves Murrow was the driver of a 1996 Mercury Sable which veered off the right side of Route 501, about one-half mile north of its intersection with State Route 628.

Trooper D. W. Lacks charged Murrow with reckless driving, failure to maintain proper control of her vehicle. He estimated damages to the Mercury at $1,500.
