Police crime scene generic

Authorities have identified the person killed in a July 4 crash on Route 151 in Nelson County.

Sarah E. Brungard, 24, of Lynchburg, was driving a 2005 Toyota Scion northward on Route 151 at about 5 p.m. Thursday when it crossed the center line and and began to spin around just south of East Branch Loop, state police said in a news release Saturday.

The Scion collided head-on with a 2015 Lincoln Navigator traveling southward. Brungard died at the scene of the crash.

The driver of the Lincoln, Wallace M. Giles Jr., 61, of Roseland, was not injured, but his 57-year-old female passenger was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Virginia State Police are still investigating the crash. All three people were wearing seat belts, authorities said.
