Driver injured in wreck
Medical issue likely a factor, police chief says
By BULLETIN STAFF REPORTS -
Police believe a medical issue contributed to a crash Monday in which a silver Saturn ran off Hospital Drive and came to rest against a post next to bleachers at Martinsville High School’s football field.
The driver, a Bassett woman in her early 50s whose identity was not released, apparently was headed to Memorial Hospital due to a medical problem when the vehicle ran off the road, said Martinsville Police Chief Sean Dunn. She was taken to Memorial from the scene of the accident and was flown to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., with “serious injuries from the crash as well as an underlying medical issue,” Dunn said.
