Authorities continue to investigate a single-vehicle crash that left a 20-year-old woman dead in Spotsylvania County on Christmas Eve.
The crash happened just after midnight at Courthouse Road and Lawyers Road, said Sheriff’s Lt. C.A. Carey. Cheyanne Phillips, a passenger in the car, was ejected from the vehicle. She died on the way to the hospital.
The Sheriff’s Office has transferred the case to the Spotsylvania Commonwealth’s Attorney, Carey said. No charges had been filed.
The fatal crash was one of at least three deadly accidents in Spotsylvania over the holiday weekend and at least four in the region.
Authorities on Thursday released details of a crash at Catharpin Road and Robert E. Lee Drive that left one man dead late on Christmas night. Charles Stevick, 24, of Spotsylvania, died after his car ran off the road and struck two trees, Carey said. Stevick was the sole occupant of the car.
Authorities were still withholding details Thursday afternoon about a third fatal car crash in the county, one that happened just after noon on Christmas Day near Spotsylvania High School on State Route 208.
One woman died in the crash, which was worked by Virginia State Police.
A Caroline County woman also died Christmas morning after losing control of her sedan about 9 a.m. on State Route 606, bringing the total number of traffic deaths in the region over the long weekend to at least four.
Carrie Lynn Jenni, 44, of Woodford, died at the crash site after her car hit a ditch, spun around and rolled several times, state police said Monday.
Jenni was not wearing a seat belt.
