Timothy O’Roark was driving his Ford Ranger on Homeland Road in Culpeper, Virginia when he crossed the yellow line and sideswiped a Dodge Neon driven by Miranda Settle, causing her car to go off the road and over an embankment.
Ms. Settle was taken to Fauquier Hospital, treated and released.
Virginia State Police said O’Roark’s blood alcohol level was .10. The legal limit in Virginia is .08.
A witness driving behind Ms. Settle saw the accident and was also nearly hit by O’Roark.
Two lane country roads are the most dangerous ones to drive and it is one reason why the death rate is so high in Virginia’s counties. There is often nowhere to go to avoid a collision if another car swerves into your lane and there is a high rate of head-on wrecks, which are much more deadly than any other type of accident.
