An Ohio woman has been charged with reckless driving after a fatal traffic accident on Warrenton Road yesterday.
On July 25th at 8:47 a.m. deputies responded to an accident on Warrenton Road near Fleet Road. The investigation revealed a southbound Chevy Impala driven by Barbara Simon, 63, had crossed the median and struck a northbound Nissan Versa. The impact pushed the Nissan into a northbound van and the Nissan overturned once.
Simon and a passenger in her vehicle were both transported to an area hospital for their injuries. The driver, and sole occupant of the Nissan, was also transported to the hospital and sadly succumbed to his injuries. There were no injuries in the van.
As a result of the accident investigation by Deputy S.C. Martin and the Traffic Safety Unit, Simon has been charged with reckless driving and has an initial court appearance next month.
