Property Damages High In Three South Boston Wrecks

Property damages totaled over $12,000 in three separate accidents in South Boston this week, according to town police. Lt. D. W. Barker said a 2008 Honda Civic driven by 45-year-old Freida Penzer of Chase City had stopped for traffic Wednesday afternoon when a 2006 Jeep SUV driven by 31-year-old Sabrina Vaughan of South Boston struck the Honda from behind.

The crash occurred at 5 p.m. on Wilborn Avenue, 200 feet north of Dogwood Drive.

Barker said investigating Officer M. W. Bowen reported that neither driver was injured, but he estimated damages at $4,000 to the Honda and $2,000 to the Jeep.

Bowen charged Vaughan with driver inattention.

No one was injured in a two-vehicle crash earlier in the afternoon Wednesday, according to Barker.

A 2006 Chevrolet Impala driven by 62-year-old Betty Roberts of Clarksville had stopped to make a turn into Hupps Mill Plaza when it was struck in the right rear by a 1999 Dodge Durango driven by 37-year-old Tara Lacks of Randolph, Barker said.

The accident occurred at 3:45 p.m. Wednesday on Hamilton Boulevard, 50 feet west of Halifax Road.

Barker said investigating Officer T. W. Bush estimated damages at $1,500 to the Impala and $600 to the Durango, and he charged Lacks with driver inattention.

Neither driver was injured in a two-vehicle crash in Centerville Tuesday evening, Barker said.

Sgt. R. D. Edmonds reported a 2006 Jeep Liberty driven by 25-year-old Corey Roberson of South Boston had yielded for traffic when it was struck from behind by a 2007 Toyota Avalon driven by 41-year-old Kristine White, also of South Boston.

The crash occurred at 6:35 p.m. Tuesday on Halifax Road (Highway 501) at its intersection with Old Halifax Road (Route 129).
Edmonds estimated damages at $300 to the Jeep and $4,000 to the Toyota. He charged White with following too closely and also driving on a suspended or revoked license.
