A 2008 Dodge Caliber was traveling south on Route 632, when it ran off of the right side of the roadway and collided with a fence.

The driver of the Dodge, Karen A. Nugent, 30, of Augusta, WV., died at the scene. Nugent’s remains were transported to the Office of the Medical Examiners in Manassas for examination and autopsy. She was wearing a seat belt.

A passenger in the Dodge, an infant male, was transported to Winchester Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries. The infant was in a proper child restraint.

The crash remains under investigation. A medical emergency is being considered as a factor in the crash.
