ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — A woman died at the hospital after being thrown from a vehicle that was trying to avoid hitting a deer in Rockbridge County earlier this week.

According to Virginia State Police, the single-vehicle crash took place at approximately 7:20 p.m. on Wednesday, April 13 on Route 608, about half a mile west of Route 689.

Authorities tell WFXR News that a 2017 Can-Am Spyder was driving north on Route 608 when it swerved to miss a deer, but the passenger was thrown from the vehicle, which ended up hitting a tree.

The passenger in the vehicle — identified by police as 40-year-old Trena Louise Booth of Afton — was brought to Roanoke Memorial Hospital, where she later died.

However, the driver of the Can-Am — 50-year-old William Hugh Plogger Jr. of Glasgow — was not injured in the crash, officials say.

As of this writing, Virginia State Police say this deadly crash is still under investigation.
