Two people were killed on Tuesday when their vehicle crashed on U.S. 301/Richmond Turnpike, the Virginia State Police said Thursday.
The police said in a statement that Jason Williams, 50, and Wendy Terrell, 55, both of Hyattsville, Maryland, were killed when they crashed about a quarter-mile south of Route 647/Doggetts Fork Road in Caroline County at about 1 p.m. Tuesday.
They said their investigation so far suggests that Williams was driving north when he tried to pass in a no-passing zone, tried to avoid southbound traffic and swerved off the road to the left.
The two died at the scene. The police are continuing to investigate.
