Scottsburg man dies after three-car crash

South Boston News / September 06, 2012
A young Scottsburg man died as the result of a three-car accident late Wednesday afternoon. Justin B. Farrar, 21, was flown by helicopter from Meadville Elementary School to Duke Medical Center, where he later died. Two women were injured and taken to the hospital for treatment.

A Virginia State Police report says a Ford Taurus, driven by Niesha Palmer, 22, of Halifax, was stopped on Chatham Road (Route 57) to make a turn into a private driveway when Farrar, driving a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, ran into the back of her car. Farrar, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the truck.

A third vehicle, a Hyundai Sonata, driven by Marie Collins of Keeling, 61, swerved to avoid the accident, ran off the road and struck and embankment. Collins was not injured.

Palmer and a passenger in her vehicle, Vikic Palmer, 49, were taken to the hospital for injuries; they were wearing seatbelts.

No charge was placed by Trooper D.T. Spencer, who estimated damage to the Ford sedan at $4,500, damage to the Chevrolet truck at $8,500, and damage to the Hyundai was estimated at $250.
