Written by on October 26, 2011 in News

Monday at about noon the Henry County Sheriff’s office investigated a two vehicle acident in the 2600 grid of Franklin Avenue just south of Oakland Mills. A truck driven by Douglas Abney Jr. of Burlington was southbound on Franklin Avenue. The truck drifted into the northbound lane. A pick up driven by Kenny Welcher of Salem was northbound at the same time. Welcher attempted to miss the Abney vehicle by driving into the east ditch. As a result the pickup rolled onto it’s top in the ditch. Abney overcorrected as he tried to swerve at the last minute. His vehicle also went into the ditch. Welcher and his passenger Ted Stoner were taken to HCHC for treatment of minor injuries. Abney was cited for driving on the wrong side of a two way road, no class D license and driving while revoked.
