A teen is dead and a second teen sustained serious injuries in a single-vehicle crash Thursday in Warren County.

The crash occurred at 1 p.m. on Route 340 (Stonewall Jackson Highway) a half-mile north of Route 607 (Rocky Lane).

A 2007 Toyota Corolla was traveling north on Route 340 when it crossed a double yellow center-line, overcorrected avoiding a southbound vehicle, ran off the roadway right, and struck a tree.

The driver of the Toyota, a 16-year-old female, of Rileyville, died at the scene of the crash as a result of her injuries. The female was wearing a seatbelt.

A passenger in the Toyota, a 14-year-old female, suffered serious injuries and was transported to INOVA Fairfax Hospital for treatment. The female was wearing a seatbelt.

VSP’s Culpeper Division Crash Reconstruction Team responded to the scene and is assisting with the ongoing crash investigation.
