There was a wreck on Wards Road at approximately 12 p.m. on Friday, October 9.

The wreck involved two vehicles and occurred near the Sunoco gas station on the northbound side of Wards Road across the street from Fox Ridge Lane.

State Police and the Altavista Fire Company responded to the incident. Police said one driver was slowing down to turn into the Sunoco station when they were hit from behind by a second car. The driver of the second car said they were unable to stop because they didn’t see the car slowing down in front of them in time.

Police said a charge for following too closely may be pending. Though one driver reported back and neck pain after the incident, neither appeared to have sustained major injuries.
