Emergency workers clear the scene of a wreck involving a Mitsubishi Lancer and an Isuzu delivery truck on Washington Road near Bobby Jones Expressway. The driver of the Lancer, Sasha Precious Richburg, 33, of Gardenbrook Drive in Augusta, was charged Wednesday with failure to yield the right-of-way while turning left, Columbia County sheriff's Deputy David Sward said. Richburg was attempting a left turn from Caribe Drive onto Washington Road when she collided with the truck in the eastbound left turn lane of Washington Road. Richburg and the driver of the Georgia Food Service Inc. truck, 30-year-old Michael Herd, of Phillips Drive in Martinez, were not injured. Richburg's passenger, Tony Bradburn, 20, of Augusta, was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Traffic was rerouted along westbound Washington Road for nearly an hour after the wreck.
