City man charged with reckless driving after striking vehicle operated by 16-year-old

By J.R. Williams - jrwilliams@nvdaily.com

WINCHESTER -- A motorist was hospitalized Monday afternoon after the 2001 Jeep Cherokee he was driving was struck head-on by a Chevrolet Impala in the 1400 block of Apple Pie Ridge Road.

Emergency crews were called at 12:58 p.m. after the maroon Jeep crashed through a fence, landed on its roof in a field and caught fire, according to state police.

Nikolo E. Bobadilla, 16, was taken to Winchester Medical Center by ambulance with a fractured ankle.

Charles Woodson, 43, of Winchester, was northbound in the silver 2000 Impala when he ran off the road, overcorrected and struck the Jeep, state police Trooper R.D. Riggs said.

Riggs said he happened to be traveling on Apple Pie Ridge Road at the time and missed the crash by moments.

Woodson sustained injuries that were not life threatening, but was taken to the hospital about an hour after the crash. He was charged with reckless driving, Riggs said.

Woodson said he was driving to a friend's house.

"I may have banged my head in the collision," he said.

"I'm still trying to make sense of the situation. It all happened very rapidly."

His car had heavy front-end damage and was towed away.

Frederick County emergency crews from Clear Brook, Round Hill and Gainesboro responded.
