Virgilina Man Injured In Saturday Morning Crash

A 26-year-old Virgilina man was injured in a single-vehicle crash early Saturday morning on Virgilina Road, according to police reports. Halifax Sheriff’s Sgt. T. C. Spencer reported Kevin Michael Daniel was injured when he fell asleep, and the 1994 Ford Explorer he was driving crossed the center line, ran off the left side of the road, struck some underbrush and then struck a tree head-on.

EMS personnel transported Daniel from the scene, Spencer said.

The crash occurred at 3:47 a.m. Saturday on Highway 96, one-half mile east of Highway 501 (Huell Matthews Highway).

Sgt. Spencer estimated damage to the Explorer as a total loss. No charges were filed.

Two South Boston men were injured in a two-vehicle accident Saturday afternoon in South Boston, town police said.

Officer M. W. Bowen reported a 2006 GMC pickup truck driven by 66-year-old Fred Palmore failed to stop at a stop sign, pulled out in traffic on Broad Street and was struck in the side by a 2003 Volvo S-40 driven by 40-year-old Mark Thackston. Bowen said the pickup ended up on its side.

EMS personnel transported Thackston to Halifax Regional Hospital, but Palmore did not require transport, Bowen said.

The crash occurred at 6:05 p.m. Saturday on Broad Street at its intersection with Edmunds Street.

Bowen said he estimated damage to each of the vehicles at $12,000, and he charged Palmore with failure to stop for a stop sign.

Both drivers sustained slight injuries in a two-vehicle crash Sunday afternoon in South Boston, according to town police.

Officer B. D. Barksdale reported a 2003 Dodge Caravan driven by 49-year-old Cecil Lipscomb was traveling north on Broad Street. A 2000 Volkswagen Beetle driven by a 17-year-old South Boston girl pulled out of Webster Street and struck the Caravan in the front on the driver’s side, Barksdale said.

Neither driver required transport to the hospital, the officer said.

The accident occurred at 1:24 p.m. on Broad Street at its intersection with Webster Street.

Officer Barksdale estimated damages at $4,000 to each vehicle, and he charged the teen with driver inattention.
