With winter officially still on the horizon, frozen roads in Carroll County claimed a second victim from a vehicle crash in one week.
Virginia State Police are saying that Barbara Larue Allen of Willis died in a one-vehicle accident while driving during the severe storm Friday at about 3:45 p.m. That system dropped more than a foot of snow on the Twin Counties Friday and Saturday.
The report says that Allen was operating a 2000 Chevy Blazer on Virginia 664, just south of Virginia 662, when she lost control on the snow covered road.
This caused her Blazer to crash through a fence and into an embankment. The vehicle overturned, ejecting and killing the driver.
Other details about the wreck were not immediately available.
This is the second fatal weather-related accident in Carroll since last Monday, when a milk delivery truck hit a patch of black ice on U.S. 58, causing it to veer out of control and overturn. Driver Guy Horton, 70, of Woodlawn, died as a result of the crash.
