Elk Causes Accident in Driftwood

An elk caused an accident in Driftwood Monday evening.

Police say 26-year-old Joshua Boone of Port Royal was on Route 120 at about 6:30 p.m. and, when he went around a curve, saw an elk standing in the road. He put on his brakes and swerved but, because of the wet road from a recent rain, the back of the car slid, and the car went into a ditch and hit a culvert.

Boone wasn’t hurt, but the car had to be towed from the scene. No charges will be filed.
