A 63-year-old South Boston woman faces a charge of driving under the influence following a two-vehicle wreck that occurred Friday at 6:55 p.m. on State Route 704, a half mile east of State Route 705.
According to an accident report filed by Virginia State Trooper H. J. Buzzetta, 46-year-old Michael A. Allred of South Boston was backing into a driveway in a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado when a 2000 Toyota Corolla driven by Martha J. Elliott failed to stop, crossed the center line and struck the Chevrolet.
The Toyota then ran off the right side of the road, struck several mailboxes and a ditch.
Neither driver was injured.
Buzzetta estimated damage to the Toyota at $8,000, damage to the Chevrolet at $3,500 and to the mailboxes belonging to Allred at $350.
