A 2002 Subaru Forester driven by Lona Lineberry crashed into a brick retaining wall at Waddell Nursing & Rehab Center’s Painter Street entrance at 9:20 a.m. on Feb. 6, according to Galax Police Capt. James Cox.
Lineberry, while traveling south on Painter Street, attempted to pull into a parking space, said Cox, when she hit the wall. Cox said that she told police she had been having some difficulty with the vehicle’s brakes.
Estimated damage to the wall was $5,000 and to the vehicle was $2,000, Cox said.
