CAMPBELL COUNTY, Va. – Police released the name of the woman who died in a car crash on Wednesday morning in Campbell County.

The Honda was unable to avoid the Chevrolet and struck it in the side, which caused the Chevrolet to overturn in the median, according to police.

The driver of the Chevrolet, Cerile Taylor, 79, of Gladys, who was wearing a seat belt, died at the scene.

The other driver was not wearing a seat belt and was taken to the hospital to have a minor injury treated.
