Goodview Man Sentenced For Intentionally Crashing Cars

Bedford Co., VA - A Goodview man will spend 18 months in prison for stealing and deliberately crashing more than a half-dozen vehicles.

Assistant commonwealth's attorney Stephanie Ayers says that some vehicles were crashed into other vehicles at a repair shop lot. Some were crashed into trees. Others were run over a hill.

Ayers says Houston Lee Pugh, 19, and a juvenile co-defendant "basically played bumper cars."

Pugh was sentenced last week after pleading guilty in Bedford County Circuit Court to grand larceny of a vehicle and property damage. He also must pay more than $8,800 in restitution.

The juvenile faces charges in juvenile court.

The vehicles were stolen earlier this month.
