Virginia Woman charged with DUI after deadly crash
Fatal DUI crash leaves one dead and one in the hospital
Friday afternoon, on Route 58 in Hillsville, Virginia, a two car collision left one with minor injuries in the local hospital and the other dead at the scene in Carroll County. Local Law Enforcement Officers confirmed that a Jeep Cherokee driven by 26 year old Amanda Huff of Hillsville was traveling west when she crossed the center line on, leading her heading straight on into oncoming eastbound traffic. According to local Authorities, the Jeep crashed head on, and at full speed, with an oncoming eastbound Ford Taurus driven by 48 year old Brenda Ayers of Meadows of Dan. State Troopers say that the force of the impact caused Huff's Jeep to go running backwards East off of the highway, rolling down an embankment so fast she was hitting several trees at high impact along the way before finally coming to a stop.
Virginia Police say that Ayers died at the scene and was wearing a seatbelt. Amanda Huff was transported by ambulance to the local hospital and treated for several minor injuries. Huff was wearing a seatbelt. It is unclear at this time what Huff's BAC (blood alcohol content) was at the time of the car accident, or if any Field Sobriety Test was taken to determin such information. Huff has been charged with a DUI, and faces potential manslaughter charges as well. In addition, she was charged with speeding in excess as being registered 62/45, 56/45, and 58/45 on the Speeding Radar. This DUI accident currently remains under police investigation at this time.
