A 76-year-old South Boston man was injured Thursday morning in a two- vehicle wreck that occurred at 11:07 a.m. at the intersection of Wilborn Avenue and Hamilton Boulevard.

According to an accident report filed by investigating South Boston Police Officer R. L. Lawson, Luther Tuck was injured when the 2003 Chevrolet S-10 pickup he was driving was struck by a 2001 Ford SUV operated by 30-year-old Olga Martinez of Danville.

Tuck was traveling south on Halifax Road passing through the intersection when Martinez failed to yield the right of way and collided with Tuck’s S-10 pickup, the report stated.

Lawson charged Martinez with failure to yield the right of way and not having a driving license.

Damage to the Chevrolet was listed at $5,000, and the Ford sustained an estimated $2,000 in damage, according to the accident report.
