Two people were transported to area hospitals with what police believed to be non life-threatening injuries following a three-vehicle collision on Route 100 Monday.
According to Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Jeff Saunders, a 1997 Chevrolet S-10 pickup driven by Mary Eads of North Tazewell was turning onto Old Giles Road from the southbound lanes of Route 100 when she crossed into the path of a 2004 Chevrolet pickup.
The driver of the Chevrolet, Clinton Meadows of Pulaski, struck Eads’ truck, then hit a third vehicle driven by Randolph Minnick of Christiansburg. Minnick’s vehicle was stopped at the stop sign on Old Giles Road when it was struck.
Eads, Meadows and a passenger in Meadows’ truck were transported to LewisGale Hospital-Pulaski, but their injuries didn’t appear to be life threatening, Saunders said. Minnick apparently was not injured.
Eads was charged with failure to yield the right of way.
The wreck was investigated by Deputy C.M. McKnight. Dublin and Newbern fire departments and REMSI responded to the 6:54 p.m. wreck.
