Three crashes reported

SoVaNow.com / September 05, 2013
Halifax County highways were relatively quiet over the Labor Day holiday weekend as only three vehicle crashes were reported.

On Sunday at 4:05 p.m., a vehicle driven by Amanda Reaves, 18, of South Boston veered off the left side of US Route 58, about 30 feet west of its intersection with State Route 1018. Reaves overcorrected and the vehicle went off the right side of the road, landing in a ditch. She was wearing her seat belt and was not injured.

Virginia State Trooper L. V. Pambid charged Reaves with reckless driving and failure to maintain proper control of her vehicle. He estimated damages to the 1999 Mazda she was operating at $1,500.

On Tuesday at 1:30 p.m., 22 year old Aaron W. Hill of Forest, the operator of a 1997 Toyota Camry, went off the right side of State Route 658 about one mile north of its intersection with State Route 773. He overcorrected and the vehicle crossed into the left lane before going back off the right side, striking a bank.

Trooper J. R. Abbott charged Hill with reckless driving, failure to maintain proper control of his vehicle. Hill was wearing a seat belt and was not injured, but damages to the Toyota were estimated at $2,500.

On Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., Sidney Venable III of Clarksville was charged with failure to drive to the right of center by Trooper B. L. Crews. The crash occurred on Old Grubby Road, about five-tenths mile east of its intersection with Knoll Wood Lane when the 2009 Infiniti that Venable was operating went off the right side, striking a guard rail.

He then overcorrected, causing the vehicle to veer to the left and strike another guard rail.

He was wearing his seat belt and was not injured, but damages to the car were set at $5,000.
