A Richmond man was involved in two accidents within hours of each other Sunday.

According to police, the first crash occurred as William Boyd, 70, swerved to miss an animal.  He went off of Walnut Street and into a ditch.

About two hours later, Boyd was heading east on Walnut St. and attempted to turn onto Broadway St.  He slid off the road and into an embankment.

Boyd was not hurt in either accident.

The investigation continues.
