Police responded to a fatal crash on Mount Cross Road in Danville on Wednesday evening.

At about 4:45 p.m., police and rescue personnel responded to a two-car motor vehicle crash at 991 Mount Cross Road.

Kelly Ferguson, 46, was pronounced non-viable at the scene by rescue personnel, according to Danville police.

Ferguson was a passenger in a 2006 Lincoln traveling south when police say the Lincoln briefly left the road before traveling back onto the roadway and becoming broadside into the path of a 1996 Jeep traveling north.

The Jeep then struck the Lincoln in the passenger side, and the driver of the Lincoln was transported to Roanoke Carillon for treatment, while the operator of the Jeep was transported to Duke Medical for treatment.

A passenger in the Jeep was treated and released at SOVAH. 

The Danville Police Crime Scene Unit responded to the scene and was assisted by the Virginia State Police.

The investigation is ongoing.
