WHAT A MESS — Thirty-eight year old Wallace Anthony Harmon of Warrington, N.C. was charged by Halifax Police Officer Robert Wilmoth with reckless driving after he lost control of the 1987 Kenworth tractor trailer on US 501 near the site of the local VDOT office. The accident which occurred at 1:12 p.m. Wednesday resulted in Harmon’s being transported to the local emergency room for head, shoulder and hip injuries. The logging truck, belonging to CWR Enterprises of Henderson, N.C., was declared a total loss. Both lanes of 501 were blocked by the logs and oil debris and both remained closed for much of the afternoon. At 4:30 p.m. all northbound traffic was being rerouted along Golf Course Road to get past the accident site and the south bound lanes were still closed. (David Conner II photo)
