A 32-year-old Vernon Hill man faces a charge of attempting to elude police following a single-vehicle wreck that occurred at 11:01 p.m. Wednesday on Highway 57, one-half mile south of State Route 667.

According to Virginia State Trooper D. N. Clark, Robert L. Colvin Jr. was fleeing from law enforcement officers in a 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo when he attempted to turn left into a driveway at a high rate of speed and crashed into a boulder.

Colvin was not injured.

Clark estimated damage to the Chevrolet at $1,500.
