Three injured in collision at Centerville intersection

South Boston News / January 16, 2020

A two-vehicle crash Tuesday afternoon in Centerville sent three persons to the hospital and badly damaged both vehicles, totaling at least one of them.

The wreck took place at the intersection of U.S. 501 and Green’s Folly Road shortly before 5 p.m. Traffic was tied up at the crash scene as multiple first responders — police, fire and rescue — tended to the injured persons.

The front end of one of the vehicles, a GMC Terrain, was sheared off by the collision with a second vehicle, a gray Malibu, as the Malibu was turning left from Green’s Folly Road onto 501. The driver of the GMC, Pamela Lacks, and her six-year-old grandson were both injured in the crash.

While police said their injuries did not appear to be major, Lacks was transported from the Sentara Halifax Regional ER to Duke Medical Center as a precaution. The child was taken to the local emergency room.

State Police reported that both victims in the GMC Terrain were in a lot of pain after the collision.

The driver of the Malibu, Jesse Waller, was talking with EMS personnel in the aftermath of the crash. He was able to walk to the ambulance to be transported to Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital.

Waller was charged with failing to yield at a turn signal.

Many local agencies responded to help assist the victims in the accident.

“The South Boston Fire Department, Halifax Rescue Squad, Patient Transport, South Boston Police Department, and VDOT all helped at the scene of the accident,” said South Boston Deputy Fire Chief Dwight Spangler.
