A 16-year-old male juvenile was injured and transported to the hospital following a wreck that occurred at 5 p.m. Saturday on Coles Ferry Road, two miles north of Hunting Creek Road, involving an Amish horse and buggy.
According to an accident report filed by Virginia State Trooper D. W. Lacks, 61-year-old Ray C. William of Nathalie was traveling in a 1995 Nissan D21 when he struck the rear of a 2010 carriage pulled by a horse led by 18-year-old Willis F. Miller of Crystal Hill.
The juvenile was riding in the buggy with Miller.
William and Miller were not injured.
William was charged with following too close.
Lacks estimated damage to the Nissan at $500 and damage to the carriage at $2,500.
The accident report of the June 25 wreck involving a county deputy’s 2017 Ford Explorer and a 2017 Nissan Versa has been filed at the local Virginia State Police office in Halifax.
The report filed by Virginia State Trooper D. A. Thompson reports 33-year-old Deputy Giles Jones was traveling south on Highway 501 to a call for service with his lights and sirens activated.
It states Jones stopped for a red light before proceeding through the intersection at Highways 501 and 58 where he collided with the Nissan driven by 48-year-old Larry Acord of Scottsburg.
The initial media report from Virginia State Police Public Relations Director Corinne Geller stated, “Once it began moving through the intersection, the Ford Explorer was struck in the side by a 2017 Nissan Versa traveling east on Route 58.”
Jones, who had been headed to Wilkerson Trail for a report of a breaking and entering in progress, was transported to the hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released.
Acord was not injured.
Both drivers were wearing their seatbelts.
No charges have been placed in the wreck.
