No Serious Injuries In Two SoBo Wrecks


None of the four drivers were seriously injured in two accidents in South Boston Tuesday morning, according to town police.

Lt. D. W. Barker said 20-year-old Justin Rand was driving a 2008 Chevrolet Aveo when he attempted to make a left turn from Myrtle Street onto Ash Avenue. Rand lost control of his vehicle, which struck a curb and overturned coming to rest on its roof, Barker said.

The crash occurred at 11:46 a.m. on Ash Avenue at its intersection with Myrtle Street.

Barker said investigating officer Sgt. R. D. Edmonds estimated damage to the Aveo at $6,000, and he charged Rand with failure to maintain proper control of a vehicle.
Earlier Tuesday morning Sgt. Edmonds was called to a three-vehicle crash, Lt. Barker said.

A 2001 Chevrolet Impala driven by 18-year-old Deshon Dabbs of South Boston and a 2006 Toyota Corolla driven by 45-year-old Mary Dunkley of Alton had stopped for traffic when a 1994 Ford Ranger pickup driven by 18-year-old James Clay of Alton struck the rear of the Toyota, pushing it into the rear of the Chevrolet, Barker said.

Sgt. Edmonds reported Dabbs and Dunkley were slightly injured, but neither required transport to the hospital.

The crash occurred at 8:33 a.m. on Halifax Road, 200-feet north of North Main Street.

Edmonds estimated damages at $300 to the Chevrolet, $600 to the Toyota and $100 to the Ford pickup. He charged Clay with following too closely.
