Three injured in Grand Central collision

VIENNA – A two-vehicle accident at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday in the 1100 block of Grand Central Avenue left three people injured.

Three people were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries from the collision, said Sgt. Scott Hughes with the Vienna Police Department.

Ashlee Talbott, 24, of Parkersburg was exiting Sam’s Club and making a left hand turn onto Grand Central Avenue when her 1995 Chevrolet Corsa was struck by Charles Brashers, 77, of Vienna driving a 2009 Toyota Prius, Hughes said.

Brashers was not transported but his passenger, Justina Brashers, was taken by EMS to the hospital, police said.

Talbott and Talbott’s passenger, Edward Moyers III of Parkersburg, also were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The two vehicles collided in front of Cheddar’s and Sam’s Club on Grand Central Avenue, police said.

Hughes said charges are pending and Talbott will most likely be cited for failure to yield while attempting to make a left-hand turn into oncoming traffic.

The Vienna Volunteer Fire Department, St. Joseph Ambulances and the Vienna Police Department responded to the accident. Traffic was slow moving during the cleanup but one lane of travel was open heading north toward Vienna on Grand Central Avenue, officials said. Both vehicles were considered total losses, police said.

Patrolman R.M. Nichols will conduct the investigation into the accident, police said.

The roadway was cleared about an hour after the crash.
