Woman life-flighted after crash

SoVaNow.com / March 18, 2019

A 23-year-old South Boston woman was life-flighted to Duke Medical Center on Saturday night after she was ejected from her car in a singe-vehicle crash on Oak Level Road near Vernon Hill.

Elizabeth (Libby) Redd was airlifted directly from the landing site at the old Wilson Memorial school after being taken there Saturday night by the Halifax County Rescue Squad and medics with the Oak Level Volunteer Fire Department. The crash took place shortly before 8 p.m. Saturday in front of Oak Level Presbyterian Church.

Redd was the only occupant of the vehicle, which ran off the right side of the road, overturned several times and came to a rest upside down in a yard. She was thrown from the vehicle and landed on the pavement, where she was initially treated by Oak Level Volunteer Fire Department emergency medical personnel.

Oak Level and Halifax County rescue squad personnel transported her to Wilson Memorial, about two miles from the crash scene, where a Centra Health medical helicopter flew her to Durham.

Redd’s condition has stabilized at Duke, according to sources close to the situation, and early indications point to a strong chance of recovery.

According to Oak Level Fire Chief Dean Waltman, it appears that Redd’s vehicle hit a culvert pipe as it ran off the road, causing it to flip end-over-end until it came to a rest in the yard. Attempts to contact Virginia State Police for an accident report on Sunday were unsuccessful.

About a dozen volunteers with the Oak Level fire department responded to the scene, backed up by the Halifax Volunteer Fire Department.
