Woman dies in collison with flatbed on Rt. 15

South Boston News
Route 15 was strewn with debris following Tuesday’s deadly accident.
SoVaNow.com / January 30, 2013
A 47 year old Clarksville woman, Antoinnette H. Lyons, died at the scene of a two-vehicle crash that occurred at 2:01 p.m. Tuesday on Route 15 south of Clarksville near the North Carolina border.

Lyons was the driver of a 2008 Dodge Nitro headed northbound on Route 15 at the 15000 block. Her vehicle reportedly crossed the centerline of the roadway. Lyons’ vehicle struck a flatbed three-axle truck operated by George C. Poteat, 53, also of Clarksville, as he was traveling over a slight knoll in the roadway. Poteat, a driver for Talbert Building Supply, was not injured in the crash.

The accident is under the investigation by Virginia State Trooper A.S. Bedsaul, who is being assisted by the Virginia State Police Appomattox Division Accident Reconstruction Team. No charges have been filed.

(Editor's note: the Jan. 30, 2013 print edition of The Mecklenburg Sun misidentifies the flatbed truck as being the property of Hensley Well Drilling. The Sun apologizes for the error.)
