Two vehicles totaled in Thursday crash

SoVaNow.com / March 25, 2013
A two-vehicle crash took place Thursday afternoon on U.S. Route 360, totaling both vehicles involved.

The wreck occurred about one-tenth mile east of the intersection of 360 and Thompson Store Road (Route 696).

Judy Chappell, 55, of Deer Run Road, Halifax was the driver of a 2000 Honda Accord that was headed east when the vehicle crossed the center line of the highway, striking the 2004 Chevrolet Explorer operated by Michael Vernon, 63, of Henderson Trail, Halifax.

According to investigating Virginia State Trooper A.D. Dishmon, Vernon saw Chappell cross the center line and attempted to avoid her vehicle, but he could not get far enough off the roadway because of an embankment. The van was struck and overturned. Both vehicles being declared total losses.

Chappell was airlifted to Wake Medical Center in Durham, N.C., while Vernon was not transported for injuries. Both drivers were wearing their seat belts.

Charges are pending in the accident.

Dishmon was called out to a single vehicle crash Thursday night at 7:20 p.m., where a 16 year old juvenile, operating a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer, had run off the left side of the roadway in the 2000 block of Clays Mill Road. The youth had no license and no learner’s permit.
