Car crash blocks Greenville Avenue

By Rebecca Martinez/staff • rmartinez@newsleader.com • July 29, 2010


STAUNTON — Staunton police charged a Stuarts Draft man with reckless driving after his vehicle crashed into a utility pole on Greenville Avenue in Staunton on Wednesday.

Boyd Kiser, 32, was driving southbound on Greenville Avenue when he veered across the center lane and struck a telephone pole near the Long John Silver's restaurant on the northbound side of the road, said Officer Lisa Klein of Staunton Police.

Dispatch received a call about the accident at 12:03 p.m., and police, the Staunton Fire Department and Staunton-Augusta Rescue Squad responded to the incident.

Kiser was trapped in his black Pontiac Vibe, which was on its side, when rescue arrived. Fire fighters removed the vehicle's roof to extract him, said Officer B.M. Metje, who was on the scene.

No other motorists were involved in the crash. Kiser was taken to Augusta Health in stable condition and was soon released.

Police said Kiser did not explain why he swerved off the road but determined that neither drugs nor alcohol played a role in the crash. Kiser was charged with failing to maintain control of the vehicle.

Police closed off a portion of a northbound lane in front of the restaurant for more than an hour until debris from the telephone pole was removed.

think it might be totalled?

Pole = 1
Vibe = 0

Pole deals a crushing blow to Vibe and wins by TKO. Decision goes to Pole.

Joatmon, You should change your screen name to GrimReaper, cause you are no longer the master of none. You are the master of bringing us all the death and destruction involving the Vibe...lol.

Wow, that 09 or 10 had a short life span! Good thing it didn't take the driver out too!

I don't know, the article said "Police closed off a portion of a northbound lane in front of the restaurant for more than an hour until debris from the telephone pole was removed" so it sounds like the Vibe reduced the pole to scattered debris. I'd call this one a draw.

Obviously both the Passive and the Active restraints worked along with the crumple zone and the driver essentially walked away unharmed!

I'd modify the score to

Vibe = 1
Pole = 0

It kinda makes you feel safe doesn't it!?!?
