3 injured in traffic accident

Three local residents sustained “serious and life-threatening” injuries Saturday night in a single-vehicle crash on Bob White Boulevard in Pulaski.
Virginia State Police Sgt. Mike Honaker said Johnny L. Quesenberry, of Pinnacle Street in Pulaski, and his passengers Darren Carrol, 19, and Heather Cummings, 18, were transported to Pulaski Community Hospital following the 9:39 p.m. wreck.
Quesenberry was subsequently transferred to New River Valley Medical Center, and Carrol was airlifted to Roanoke Memorial Hospital.
Honaker said an investigation by Trooper M.A. Newberry determined Quesenberry allegedly was “exceeding the speed limit” while northbound on Bob White Boulevard when the vehicle he was driving ran off the left side of the road, striking a small pump house and a fence.
According to Honaker, Quesenberry was allegedly traveling around 70 miles per hour in the 45-mph zone.
“The vehicle experienced a violent, high-speed collision with the pump house and fence just before it overturned in a stream, Honaker said.
None of the occupants in the vehicle were wearing a seatbelt, and all three were thrown from the vehicle, with one actually landing in the stream,” Honaker said.
According to Honaker, Newberry charged Quesenberry with driving under the influence of alcohol as a result of the wreck.
Due to the Veterans Day holiday, no updates on the wreck were available Tuesday.
