NOTTOWAY — A 44-year-old Farmville woman died in a single-vehicle crash in Nottoway County on Wednesday Morning, according to Virginia State Police (VSP) Public Relations Director Corinne Geller.

Geller said Betsy G. Evans was driving east on Route 460 Business in a 1995 Chevrolet CK1500 pickup truck when it ran off the right side of the road.

“The driver overcorrected the pickup, which caused it to cross over Route 460 and run off the left side of the highway and strike a tree,” Geller said.
