A Saturday motorcycle crash involving two bikes resulted in injuries to one of the drivers. Thirty year old Richard E. Moore of Buckner, N.C., was injured in the 7:30 p.m. crash when the 2013 Suzuki he was operating ran off the right side of State Route 659 about two miles east of its intersection with State Route 691. The bike then swerved to the left striking the 2012 Yamaha operated by 31 year old Michael W. Crenshaw of South Boston. Crenshaw was not injured.

Moore’s motorcycle then went off the right side of the roadway again, striking a ditch. Investigating Virginia State Trooper D. W. Lacks charged Moore with reckless driving, failure to maintain control of his vehicle. Damages to Moore’s bike were estimated at $2,000 while those to Crenshaw’s were set at $500.

Speece of South Boston with driving under the influence after the 1997 Chevrolet he was operating on State Route 744, about a half mile south of its intersection with State Route 658, veered off the right side fo the road, striking a mail box belonging to Jesse R.
