A Nathalie man was transported to the hospital with minor injuries following a wreck on Love Shop Road early Thursday morning, according to Virginia State Police.
Virginia State Trooper D. N Clark reported the wreck occurred at 8:40 a.m. on State Route 614 (Love Shop Road), one mile west of State Route 651 (Cowford Road) when 57-year-old Luther P. Morton, who was driving east in a 2004 Kenworth tractor-trailer belonging to Spencer and Sons Logging, crossed the center line while attempting to avoid a dead deer in the eastbound lane.
Carlos L. Coles, a 19-year-old Nathalie resident who was driving west in a 2012 Chevrolet Impala, ran off the right side of the road to avoid a collision and struck a tree, according to Clark.
Clark estimated $3,000 damage to the Impala.
Morton, a Charlotte Courthouse resident, was not injured, and the Kenworth received no damages, according to Clark, who filed no charges in the wreck.
