SoVaNow.com / February 27, 2014
Two recent automobile mishaps resulted in serious injuries to three drivers involved in the mishaps.
The first crash took place Saturday, February 22 at 8:45 p.m. on Route 501, just south of its intersection with State Route 643. According to police reports, a 1993 Nissan Altima operated by Brian Thomas Shortt, 31, of Liberty Road, Nathalie crossed the center line into the south-bound lane and struck a 2001 Toyota 4Runner, driven by Ruth Karen Smith-Leigh, 46, of West Oak Hill, Halifax.
With the impact, the Toyota was forced off the right side of the roadway, overturning and going down an embankment. Both Shortt and Smith-Leigh were transported by emergency services personnel to the local hospital for treatment of significant injuries.
Virginia State Trooper P.W. Leath investigated the accident. He estimated damages to the Nissan at $3,500 and to the Toyota at $9,500. Charges in the accident are pending.
On Monday morning at 6:10 a.m., a 2002 Honda Civic operated by 20 year old Jabier Leon Noyola of Winston-Salem, N.C., went off the right side of U.S. Route 58 about one-tenth mile west of its intersection with State Route 747. The Honda crossed the median strip and both lanes of 58 before striking a mailbox, going down an embankment and overturning.
Noyola was transported for treatment of significant injuries.
Investigating Virginia State Trooper B.L. Crews charged Noyola with reckless driving and estimated damages to the Honda at $4,500.
