SR 40 Crash

The snowy weather has brought on a rash of accidents in the area Monday night.

The State Highway Patrol responded to a one-vehicle roll-over crash on S.R. 40 near Ridge Road in Hopewell around 7:30 p.m.

"The vehicle was eastbound on US 40 in the left lane, the vehicle lost control, stated she was driving 55 miles hour. She went off the road and struck the embankment and overturned," said Trooper Todd Henry.

The driver, who was a juvenile, was able to escape the vehicle uninjured. Trooper Henry said she will be cited with failure to control.

He said this winter they have seen a high number of one-vehicle crashes and advises using caution when traveling.

"You do need to slow down, that's mainly your best way. You just need to slow down and be very cautious," said the trooper.

He said speed and conditions were most likely a factor in the crash.
