ABC 13 first reported the fatal accident in Amherst County involving a concrete truck and a Jeep Cherokee.

Police reported that the woman driving the Jeep Wednesday morning appeared to have lost control and hit the truck head-on sending the vehicle down an embankment. Sadly, the woman did not survive the crash. The driver of the truck was not taken to the hospital, according to news reports.

V-DOT reported both lanes of Route 60 were initially closed; the west right lane on Route 60 in Amherst near Lowesville Road/ Rt 778 remained closed into the afternoon because of the accident.

Authorities believe the weather may have been a factor.

Roads are wet from all of the rain and some roads in the area are flooded this July 4th. Click here to check road conditions.
