Distracted driving investigated as possible cause of Campbell County rollover wreck

CAMPBELL COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — A possible distracted driver crashed into a mail carrier truck in Campbell County on Thursday afternoon, Virginia State Police tell WFXRtv.com.

According to Virginia State Trooper Justin Harris, the driver of a 2007 Nissan Versa was driving east on Timberlake Road near Greenwell Court, swerved off the right side of the road, and overcorrected before rear-ending a parked mail carrier truck.

The impact of the crash caused the truck to turnover into a ditch.

The Nissan driver, Carol Anne Rosser, 69, may have been distracted with her radio at the time of the crash, Harris said. Rosser was charged with failure to maintain control of the vehicle.

The mail carrier, Charles Tyree, Jr. was completing service at a mailbox and was in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

Tyree was transported for his injuries, including minor scratch on his head and possible rib bruising, Harris said. The trooper believes Tyree has been released from the hospital.
