PITTYSLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Virginia state troopers are investigating after a crash between a car and a tractor-trailer left a North Carolina man dead Tuesday afternoon.

At approximately 12:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 8, police say a two-vehicle crash took place on Cane Creek Parkway at Tom Fork Road.

According to Virginia State Police, a 2004 Toyota Camry was traveling on Tom Fork Road when it failed to stop for the posted stop sign, continued onto Cane Creek Parkway, and struck a tractor-trailer.

The impact of the crash caused both the car and trailer of the commercial vehicle to catch on fire, officials say.

Virginia State Police say the Camry’s driver — identified as 61-year-old Shirley J. Scott of Milton, North Carolina — died at the scene of the crash.

However, the tractor-trailer driver was reportedly not injured in the crash.
