Two people were injured in the crash and were taken to Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital to seek medical attention as a result. Currently, there is no updated information of the conditions of the injured parties.
Another accident occurred on East 1st Street, involving two vehicles, resulting in no injuries.
The female driver of a white Toyota RAV4 was speeding and hit a parked Blue Hyundai Sonata. Once the RAV4 hit the Sonata, it flipped the SUV to its side.
No one was injured in the accident, however the driver was entrapped in the vehicle, according to Weston Assistant Fire Chief Michael James.
James also said that the fire department had to cut out the front windshield of the SUV to get the driver out of the vehicle.
The driver was transported to Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital to check for injuries following the accident.
Weston Police Department, Weston Fire Department and Lewis County EMS were on scene.
Pricetown and Jackson’s Mill Volunteer Fire Departments responded to a brush fire in Churchville, that same day as well, after 4 p.m.
Pricetown Lieutenant Matt Collins, said that the fire was started by a lightening strike, which occurred while the property owners were not home.
The fire took approximately two hours to put out due to the location of the fire being in a hard to reach area with the fire trucks according to Collins.
No one was injured during the brush fire.
