Woodlawn, VA (January 25, 2023) – The Virginia State Police and area firefighters were summoned to the site of the traffic crash on Friday morning in the Woodlawn area.
At approximately 7 a.m., the police department was called to provide assistance at the scene of a crash that took place on US Route 58.
According to reports, a school bus was traveling through US Route 58. As the vehicle proceeded to the area approximately 500 feet east of Route 1120, Canary Lane, the school bus came to a stop. A 2014 Nissan Versa Note also stopped near Miller’s market due to the bus stopping. The Nissan was driven by 57-year-old Clifford Lonnie Wild.
For unknown reasons, a 2013 Dodge dart, which was driven by 21-year-old Robert Tyler Ashley, crashed into the rear of the Nissan.
The incident caused severe and extensive damage to both of the involved vehicles.
Wild had to be extricated from his vehicle by the Hillsville Volunteer Fire Department. He was then airlifted and flown to a regional Hospital, where he underwent emergency care for his injuries.
Ashley was treated for minor injuries at the scene. Ashley was then subsequently charged with failing to maintain control of their vehicle and reckless driving.
Wild was admitted to a local hospital in critical condition.
The incident remains under investigation at this time.
We hope Clifford Lonnie Wild recovers quickly from this accident.
