Orange woman dies after crash in Shenandoah.
Head-on crash claims life of Orange woman
A 24-year-old Orange County woman died after a two-vehicle crash Tuesday in Shenandoah County, said Corinne Geller, spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police.
The crash happened shortly before noon on U.S. 211 near Run Away Lane, east of New Market.
Geller said the westbound 2008 Kia Spectra driven by Amber L. Dove of Rhoadesville crossed the center line and ran head-on into a three-axle feed truck.
Dove was taken to Rockingham Memorial Hospital in Harrisonburg, where she later died.
The driver of the truck, 24-year-old Ricky Thompson, was not injured.
The accident is still being investigated, but Geller said speed "has been determined to have been a factor in the crash."
