Virginia Residents Suffer Minor Injuries In Rollover Crash

Two King George, VA, residents suffered minor injuries when their 1988 Dodge Omni  rolled onto it's roof after hitting an embankment on Route 44, 2 1/2 miles south of Rt. 144 in Stewardson Township, Potter County on July 28th at 6:30 pm.

Bela J. Vastag, 73, and his passenger, Christine M McClintock, 63, suffered minor abrasions but refused medical transport.

Trooper James Culvey said the crash occurred as Vastag was traveling northbound on SR 44, negotiating a sharp curve, when he lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle struck a dirt embankment on the north roadside and overturned onto it's roof. It then slid 50 feet on it's roof before coming to rest in the northbound lane. Both the driver and passenger were wearing seat belts.

Vastag was cited for (not) Driving Vehicle At Safe Speed. Dave Rawson's Garage of Germania towed the vehicle from the scene. Kettle Creek Hose Company assisted at the scene.

If you would take the time to check out some stats, you would notice that the highest accident rates occur in the 25-55 age group.
