A 39 year old South Boston man was charged with reckless driving and failure to maintain control of his vehicle in a single-car crash Sunday, Aug. 18 at 10:45 a.m.

The 2013 Nissan truck operated by Jason M. Bomar veered off the right side of Terry’s Bridge Road about four-tenths mile north of its intersection with State Route 914. The truck first struck a mailbox and then a fire hydrant before coming to rest in a ditch.

Bomar was not injured, but investigating Virginia State Trooper B. L. Crews estimated damages to the truck at $12,000 with another $100 in damages to the mail box.

In an early Monday morning crash, 47 year old Carolyn C. Lewis of South Boston suffered minor injuries when the 2006 Chevrolet Impala she was operating pulled in front of the 2004 Jeep Ranger driven by 60 year old Wanda M. Gill of Oxford, N.C. The Impala struck the side of the Jeep at the intersection of US Route 501 and State Route 658 at 7:45 a.m. Neither driver was transported but Gill also suffered minor injuries.

Damages to the Impala were set at $6,000 while investigating Virginia State Trooper J. A. Williamson estimated damages to the Jeep at $3,000. Lewis was charged with failure to yield the right-of-way.
