GRAYSON COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Police are investigating a Thursday afternoon crash in Grayson County that left one man dead and a woman injured.

Virginia State Police say troopers responded to a two-vehicle crash shortly after 3:50 p.m. on Thursday, June 10 at the intersection of Route 58 and Route 626.

According to police, a 2008 GMC Sierra was traveling east on Route 58 when it hit a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee that failed to yield the right of way as it was crossing from Route 626.

The driver of the Jeep — identified by authorities as 88-year-old George C. Spurlin, Jr. of Galax — was brought to the hospital for treatment, but he later died from his injuries at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital.

Meanwhile, officials say the driver of the GMC — 37-year-old Hannah R. Eller of Mouth of Wilson — sustained minor injuries in the crash.

Both drivers were reportedly wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash, which is still under investigation by Virginia State Police.
