A two vehicle collision on the Eastern Shore of Virginia has left an elderly woman dead.

I was saddened to read about the crash at 10:54 a.m. on Saturday in Accomack County at the intersection of U.S. 13 and Taylor Road.

Virginia State Police said an 82-year old woman from Tasley, Virginia., was killed at the accident scene. Police said the woman was not wearing a seat belt, according to investigators. Police said the other driver, a 50-year old man from Onancock on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, was taken to Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital for treatment of serious injuries. Morris was wearing a seat belt, police said.

Troopers said he was driving a 1993 Chevrolet S10 pickup truck south on U.S. 13. He was in the left land.

Police said the 82-year-old woman was driving a 1987 Dodge Caravan. The accident report said she pulled right in front of the other vehicle. T

The man was heading east on Taylor Road and he crossed onto Highway 13. Investigators say he did not have time to react and crashed into the driver’s side of the minivan.

The crash is still under investigation by state police.
