MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT:
1600 block William Street (Route 3), 3/29 2:40 pm. The driver of a Chevrolet Cavalier was traveling east on Route 3 and came to a stop to make a left turn into Centre Court. The driver of a Dodge Durango safely stopped behind the Cavalier, but the driver of a Mazda Protege that was next in line in traffic did not. The Mazda driver braked hard and was struck from behind by a Ford Explorer. The impact from the Explorer sent the Mazda into the rear of the Durango,
which then struck the back of the Cavalier. The Mazda glanced off the Durango and rotated through the air into the path of oncoming vehicles. A Toyota Scion traveling westbound was struck by the airborne Mazda. The Mazda came to rest on its roof in the westbound lanes of Route 3.
The driver of the Cavalier and the driver of the Mazda were both transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The Mazda driver, Janice Sweeton, 73, of Locust Grove was charged with failure to give full time and attention and the driver of the Ford Explorer, Marcello Lindo, 32, of Fredericksburg was charged with following too closely.
