Wrecks cause heavy damages
SoVaNow.com / March 27, 2013The Virginia State police were called out to two vehicle crashes over the past several days.
Desirae A. Reynolds, 22, of Bracey was involved in a single car crash Thursday morning around 9:40 at the intersection of Old St. Tammany and Marengo Roads near LaCrosse.
Trooper D.R. Allen said Reynolds vehicle ran off the right side of the road, struck a sign, then ran off the left side of the road. The 2001 Pontiac Grand Am overturned before striking a tree and coming to a halt. Reynolds was the sole passenger in the car, which sustained, according to Allen's estimate, $10,000 in damage.
Reynolds was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries she incurred during the accident. No information was available as to the extent of those injuries.
Reynolds was charged with failure to maintain control.
Monday afternoon Trooper J. J. Hite was called to a three-car crash on Route 1 near Union Level Road. in South Hill. The crash took place around 2:30 p.m.
Hite reported that 87 year old Richard Lewis of South Hill was attempting to make a left hand turn, when he struck a Mazda B2600i pickup driven by David Williams, 37, of Oxford, North Carolina. The impact drove Williams' vehicle off the road and into a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country owned by Mari Morse, 56, of South Hill.
Only Lewis reported any injuries at the time of the accident, but said they were minor and refused transport to the hospital. Since Lewis did not have the right of way, according to Hite, he would most likely be charged with failing to yield.
Hite estimated that Lewis, who was driving a 1995 Pontiac Grand Am, sustained $3,000 in damage to his vehicle. Williams' 1993 Mazda truck sustained approximately $1,500 in damages. There was no estimate as to the amount of damage sustained by Morse's vehicle.
