Subscribers to the Reynolds County Courier newspaper will have delayed delivery this week after the paper’s delivery van was involved in an accident. The accident at 3:06 p.m. Tuesday, June 30, on Highway 21 in Lesterville.
Justin Wilkins, 22, of Piedmont apparently ran off the right side of the road in a 1999 Ford van. He hit a ditch and over corrected and the van came to rest in the middle of the highway.
Wilkins, who was wearing a seat belt, was transported to Iron County Medical Center with minor injuries. The van was towed by Hill’s to Ellington. Newspapers were delivered to the Ellington Post Office Wednesday morning. Subscribers should receive their newspapers in the mail on Thursday
