Two people were injured during a rollover accident Sunday afternoon, in Page County. Sheriff’s officials say the driver of a minivan, 18-year old Elyane Anderson, of Chicago, IL, and her 20-year old passenger, Antonio Ray Putnam, of Essex, were transported to the Shenandoah Medical Center following the crash at 150th Street and “B” Avenue, at around 3:15-p.m., Sunday.

The pair were traveling east on 150th when Anderson lost control of the 1997 Dodge mini-van. The vehicle slid off the road at the intersection with B Avenue and knocked over a stop sign, entered the east ditch and rolled over onto a fence before coming to rest on its wheels.

Anderson and Putnam suffered possible, unknown injuries. Authorities say they were wearing their seatbelts. Authorities cited Anderson for Operating without a valid license, failure to maintain control, and having no proof of insurance.

The van was totaled in the crash. Other damage, including to the stop sign and fence, amounted to $850.
