Charges pending in wreck

Charges are pending in a single-vehicle accident that occurred Monday afternoon on Hackberry Road, eight-tenths of a mile north of State Route 713 in the southwestern part of the county.

According to investigating State Trooper D. H. Hess, 71-year-old George Eddie Richardson of Sutherlin was driving a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee traveling south on Hackberry Road when he ran off the left side of the road, struck a tree and overturned.

Richardson was injured in the wreck, and Turbeville EMS transported him to Danville Medical Center, Hess said.

The investigating officer estimated damages to the Jeep at $3,000.
