Wrecks mount amid icy conditions

SoVaNow.com / March 06, 2014
Dangerous driving conditions on local roads resulted in three auto mishaps within a two-hour period Monday evening. No injuries were reported in any of the three single-vehicle crashes, but property damages were significant.

The first incident occurred at 4:45 p.m. on US 501 about one-half mile south of its intersection with State Route 610 when 40 year old Preston J. Faulkner of Nathalie lost control of the 1997 Chevrolet Blazer he was driving on the snow-ice covered road. The Blazer went off the right side of the roadway, striking an embankment, inflicting $2,500 in damages.

Faulkner was charged by Sgt. C. W. Owen of the Virginia State Police with reckless driving, going too fast for highway conditions.

Shortly thereafter at 5:05 p.m., 34 year old Aaron L. Whitlock of Halifax, the driver of a 2004 Dodge Ram, veered off the left side of US 58, about one mile west of its intersection with State Route 699. The vehicle struck a tree, with damages estimated at $4,500.

Investigating Virginia State Trooper D. T, Spencer placed no charges in the accident.

At 6:52 p.m., Spencer placed no charges when the 2000 Toyota operated by 25 year old Roosevelt B. Pettaway of South Boston ran off the left side of US Route 58 about one mile east of its intersection with State Route 881. The Toyota struck a guardrail which was valued at $500 and damages to the vehicle were set at $2,500.
