Herron over corrected which sent the vehicle across the roadway and off the west side.

That is when the passenger side of the truck hit a tree and the vehicle began to overturn, coming to rest on the west side of the roadway.

Herron was not wearing a seat belt but escaped the accident with minor injuries. He was taken by private vehicle to Fairfax Community Hospital for treatment.
