Bettie H. Terry, 43, of Clarksville lost her life Saturday, Nov. 30 when the car she was driving, a 1996 Ford Contour, ran off Kinderton Road,

The crash took place around 11:30 p.m. on Route 803, Kinderton Road, just west of Old Rock Road, Route 722.

Virginia State Trooper A.S. Bedsaul reported that Terry had just come through a curve on Kinderton Road, about a mile west of Old Rock Road, when her car ran off the road to the left. She was not wearing a seatbelt at the time.

Bedsaul said alcohol was not a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.

On Sunday, Dec. 1, Troopers R.C. Duffer and C.B. Sizemore responded to a fatal crash in Boydton around 5:56 p.m. Eight of the nine people riding in the vehicle at the time were injured and one passenger died at the scene.

The driver and seven passengers sustained injuries — from minor to serious — when the 2004 Honda Pilot overturned on U.S. 58 east of Tucker Lane, Route 766. An eighth passenger, 76 year old Harold Mitchell of Philadelphia, Pa., was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, according to the troopers’ report.

The driver, Ronald Anderson, 54, of Philadelphia, was heading east on U.S. 58 when his vehicle ran off the right side of the road and struck the guardrail. The vehicle then overturned several times.

Anderson, who was wearing a seatbelt, sustained serious injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. He was charged with reckless operation.

The seven other passengers, including 58 year old Roberta Haywood, 54 year old Brenda Anderson, and five minors ranging in age from 2 years old to 17 years old were also transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of their injuries.

Duffer reported that these seven passengers were all wearing “occupant restraints” at the time of the accident.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, but Duffer said alcohol was not a factor.
