Three persons die in Brunswick accidents

SoVaNow.com / October 10, 2012
Three unrelated traffic deaths occurred in Brunswick County in the last week, Virginia State Police reported.

Twenty-two-year-old Dusty Wallace Kidd of Gasburg died Oct. 1, as a result of a single car crash on Route 665 near Gasburg. Two unnamed passengers in the car at the time of the accident – a 17-year-old male and an 18-year-old female – escaped with minor injuries.

According to a report filed by Trooper D. Pendergrass, the accident occurred around 8:05 p.m. when the 1999 Pontiac Firebird Kidd was driving ran off the left side of the road and struck several trees. At the time of the crash, he was heading north on Route 665 near the intersection of Route 663.

The investigator found that Kidd attempted to return the vehicle to road, but it overturned before coming to stop in a ditch on the opposite side of the road.

Kidd and the female passenger were not wearing seatbelts and were ejected from the vehicle. The 17-year-old male passenger was wearing his seatbelt.

Pendergrass had not determined the cause of the crash as of press time.

A funeral for Kidd will take place Thursday, Oct. 11 at 2 p.m. at Crowder-Hite-Crews Funeral Home and Crematory in South Hill.

Orlando Octavious Petty, 38 of Cruz, died from injuries he suffered when his car overturned near the 11200 block of Old Stage Road in Brunswick County on Oct. 6.

Petty was heading south on Old Stage Road in a 2003 Dodge Neon when he ran off the road and struck a tree. He and his passenger, Clifton Lamont Hardy, 39, of Warfield, were thrown from the car. Both were life-flighted to the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond.

Petty later died in the hospital due to his injuries. Hardy remains in critical but stable condition.

Virginia State Police were called to a third single-car crash on Oct. 7 at 12:15 a.m. near the intersection of Tanner Town and Evans Creek Roads.

Michelle Anaya of the Virginia State Police said that Steve Reil Wray, Jr., 63, of Brodnax, overcorrected his vehicle. This caused his 1986 Chevy Silverado to drive off the road and strike a tree.

Wray, who was not wearing his seatbelt, was declared dead at the scene. He was retired from Kenbridge Construction.
