POWHATAN Co., Va. (WWBT) - Virginia State Troopers are investigating a head-on collision that left a woman dead in Powhatan County.

On Friday, April 24, at 4:30 p.m., the Virginia State Police responded to a two-vehicle crash at Huguenot Trail and Judes Ferry Road.

Officials say that Jason Talbott, 19, was driving a Ford F-550 hauling a trailer with a skid-steer loader westbound on Route 711. He braked to avoid striking the vehicle in front of him.

“Talbott then veered left crossing the center of the highway and into the eastbound travel lanes. A Volkswagen SUV, driven by Rebecca Wolf, 56, was traveling eastbound when she was struck head-on by the Talbott.” police said.

Troopers also said Wolf was wearing her seatbelt, but unfortunately, died at the scene.

Talbott sustained minor injuries and was not transported to the hospital as previously reported. A male passenger in the Ford was not injured.

State Troopers also say, “Talbott has been charged with; reckless driving, and driving suspended.”

This crash is still under investigation.
