No injuries in Clarksville crash

SoVaNow.com / October 09, 2013
A two-car crash in front of Clarksville Town Hall and Virginia Avenue Mall on Virginia Avenue Thursday afternoon, left one car disabled, having to be hauled away on a flatbed, but no injuries to either driver.

At the time of the crash, both drivers, who were alone in their vehicles, were wearing their seatbelts.

Gayles Stewart of Clarksville was heading east on Virginia Avenue when Joyce Luffman pulled out from a parking space into the lane of traffic. The left front of Luffman’s Kia Sedona mini van collided with the right front bumper of Stewart’s 1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport.

Luffman was cited for failing to yield the right of way.

Damage to both cars was estimated at $1,500 according Clarksville Police Cpl. James Crawford.
