A Bedford man suffered minor injuries after his transport truck was run off Kenmore Road in Hillsville on August 27.

According to Virginia State Police Trooper S.E. Kinney, the accident occurred at approximately 1:40 p.m. on Kenmore Road, about two-tenths of a mile off of Joy Ranch Road. Kinney said Gary Dean Burks, 49, of Bedford, was driving a J.B. Hunt transport truck when he met a pickup truck traveling on the wrong side of the road, forcing Burks over the road and into a ditch.

Kinney said the other driver did not stop, adding that Burks was transported to Twin County Regional Hospital in Galax for minor injuries. Kinney did not charge Burks.
