A 77-year-old Halifax woman was killed in a two-vehicle accident Friday evening on U.S. 501 in Campbell County.
At about 5:15 p.m., a Toyota Highlander was traveling along U.S. 501 and attempted to pass a vehicle in front of it. The Highlander crossed the center line and struck a Honda Odyssey traveling in the opposite direction head-on, according to a news release from the Virginia State Police.
The driver of the Odyssey, Charlie R. Smith, 73, of Halifax, was transported to Lynchburg General Hospital along with his wife, Mary Smith, police said.
Both sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries.
Another passenger, Doris M. Chappell, 77, of Halifax, was transported to Lynchburg General Hospital, where she died later Friday evening.
The driver of the Highlander, 48-year-old Anthony T. Chambers, of Lynchburg, and his four passengers were transported to Lynchburg General Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries ranging from minor to serious, police said.
Chambers was arrested for DUI and charged with driving on a revoked license.
Additional charges are pending. The crash remains under investigation.
