One killed, three injured in Louisa County crash

LOUISA, VA (WWBT) - Two Charlottesville women are dead following a motor vehicle crash in Louisa County Wednesday afternoon. 

At 1:16 p.m., Virginia State Police were called to the scene on Route 33, Jefferson Highway, at the intersection with Route 648, Jouett School Road.

A 1995 Ford Taurus was traveling northbound on Route 648 when the driver failed to yield the right of way at the stop sign and was struck by a 2003 Ford F-150 traveling westbound on Route 33, according to police.  Both vehicles then ran off the left side of the roadway striking a fence. 

The driver of the Taurus, Patricia P. Hart, 74, of Charlottesville, died at the scene. Hart was wearing her safety belt.  Two other passengers, Margaret P. Porterfield, 96, and a 10 year-old female were transported by ambulance to Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center with serious injuries. 

Porterfield was wearing her safety belt at the time of the crash. She later died.

It is still being investigated as to whether the 10 year-old was wearing her safety belt. 

The driver of the F-150, Luanne G. Bragg, 39, of Bumpass, was injured in the crash and transported by ambulance to Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville.  Bragg was wearing her safety belt.
