Three uninjured in crash that rolled van

The other driver was at fault in a rollover accident on Wednesday, April 28, at the corner of Brewer and Cannonsburg roads at about 2:30 p.m. The crash left three young men shaken, but without serious injuries, although their vehicle was totaled. According to a Kent Country Sheriff’s Deputy, the vehicle that rolled was eastbound on Cannonsburg when a silver pickup going west turned into the van while attempting to turn north on Brewer Road. The pickup hit the back of the van, flipping and spinning it with enough force to knock the tires off the van. The deputy said the driver of the pickup was cited for causing the accident and then released.

“I probably wouldn’t be here if I didn’t have my seat belt on,” stated one of the riders in the rolled van.

All three were buckled up, likely the reason they were not seriously injured.

“I don’t even think he hit his brakes,” said another occupant of the van. “Here we were in a red vehicle, the most noticeable color, and I don’t think he even saw us.”
