Sheriff Connie C. Smith (shown here administering first aid to the driver of a Toyota pickup truck who crashed on U.S. 211 near Massies Corner last Thursday afternoon) says the seatbelt worn by the driver probably saved him from more serious injuries after his vehicle flipped, and he had to be cut out of the truck and transported to the hospital by rescuers from Flint Hill, Washington and Amissville volunteer rescue squads. The driver sustained mostly cuts and bruises, the sheriff said.
