No injuries in vehicle overturn
A vehicle overturned in the 2600 block of Abilene Road on Thursday afternoon due, in part, to poor road conditions following the snowfall, but it resulted in no injuries, according to Prince Edward County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Andy Cary.
Prince Edward County Sheriff’s Office, Darlington Heights Volunteer Fire Department and a Virginia State Police trooper were on scene of the single-vehicle accident of a white Ford E350.
Darlington Heights Fire Chief Dallas Tinsley said an ambulance was called but was turned away after the driver reportedly left the vehicle without injuries.
Tinsley said the department received the call at 3:52 p.m.
Cary said the road conditions due to the snowfall had contributed to the accident.
“The subject headed west bound (on Abilene Road),” Cary said. “(With) snow on road, vehicle lost control, slipped, rolled over.”
Tinsley said the vehicle had reportedly pulled to the side of the road to give room for the vehicle on the opposite side of the road.
“(The vehicle) moved over to give another car room, slipped,” Tinsley said. “Not hard to do on these kind of days.”
Mar Towing, based in Keysville, worked to flip the vehicle and tow it from the site of the accident.
The driver of the white Ford E350, on scene, declined to comment.
