ACCOMACK CO., Va. – Carolyn A Sample died Thursday around 9:30 p.m. when she hit a pickup truck head-on while traveling in her Chevy sedan on Route 13 in Accomack County.

Following the impact of the crash, Sample’s car ended up overturning and entrapping her inside.

First responders would take Sample to Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital, but she would later die from the injuries she received in the crash.

According to State Police, it is not known yet if Sample was drinking the night of her crash.
