Damages Extensive, Traffic Blocked In Friday Wreck

A two-vehicle wreck involving this Ford Fusion and pickup truck occurred Friday afternoon around 1:45 p.m. on US-360 (James D. Hagood Hwy.) at Runt Powell’s Store in the vicinity of Dan River Church Road (Rt. 716).

The accident resulted in extensive damages to both vehicles and to a gas pump that the Ford struck and knocked over.

Motorists traveling in the vicinity of the wreck experienced delays when westbound traffic was blocked in both the left and right lanes.

A detour was established directing traffic to Rt. 716 west and back on to US-360 west while the cleanup took place.

Halifax County Rescue Squad transported persons involved in the accident to the hospital Friday afternoon; however, further details of the wreck were unavailable as of press time Sunday.
