A third victim has died as a result of injuries sustained in a car accident Saturday, Dec. 12, on Scottsville Road that claimed the lives of two Buckingham residents.

According to a release from the Albemarle County Police Department, first responders discovered a vehicle driven by 35-year-old Sandra Bartola Figueroa Guillen, of Buckingham, had taken a right-hand turn to go southbound on Scottsville Road and entered the northbound traffic lane. The vehicle was struck head on by another car traveling in the northbound lane.

Guillen and a juvenile passenger were both found deceased at the scene. A second juvenile passenger was transported to UVA Hospital in stable condition.
