A 2012 Hyundai Tucson was traveling west on Rt. 637 at a high rate of speed when it rear ended a 2010 Chevy Silverado that was also traveling west. The Hyundai then over turned before coming to rest.

The driver of the Chevy, an adult male, 58, of Stephens City, Va., suffered minor injuries in the crash. The male was wearing a seat-belt.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
