Halifax police respond to pair of accidents

SoVaNow.com / February 28, 2011
On Friday, Feb. 25 Halifax Police Lt. D. D. Irby investigated two vehicle crashes within the Town of Halifax. According to Irby’s report, in the first crash at 11:58 at 5200 Halifax Road, 40 year old Marc D. Bridgers of South Boston was driving north on Halifax Road in a 2000 GMC pickup when his vehicle was struck from the right side by a 2003 Buick Century operated by 82 year old D. Sidney Ingram of Halifax.

According to Irby’s investigation, Ingram was attempting to pull into the highway from his driveway and pressed the accelerator instead of the brake. No injuries were reported, and Irby charged Ingram with failure to yield the right of way.

Irby estimated damage to Ingram’s Buick at $8,000 and damage to the pickup at $5000.

At 1 p.m., Irby investigated a crash involving three vehicles in front of Halifax Town Hall.

According to Irby’s report, 61 year old Irvin R. Glass, Jr. of Nathalie was driving south on Main Street in a 1985 Nissan pickup when the vehicle veered across the northbound lane and struck a parked 2009 Honda sedan owned by Shirley H. Elliott of Halifax. The force of impact forced the Honda backwards, damaging a parked 1997 Chevrolet pickup owned by Jeffery Duffer of Clover.

Irby estimated damage to the Nissan at $1500, with $10,000 damage to the Honda and $1500 damage to Duffer’s pickup. None of the parked vehicles were occupied at the time of the crash.

According to Irby’s report, Glass had a cut on his forehead but refused medical treatment.

Irby charged Glass with reckless driving: failure to maintain proper control of a motor vehicle.
