4-year-old boy dies after Prince Edward County crash

A four-year-old died after a highway crash Sunday in Prince Edward County.

Virginia State Police said a vehicle was going north on Route 604 around 12:30 p.m. July 5 when it ran off the right side of the road. Police said the driver overcorrected, which caused the vehicle to cross back onto the highway, cross the center line, and hit a pickup truck going in the opposite direction.

Troopers said the vehicle over-corrected, “which caused the vehicle to cross back onto the highway, cross the center line, and hit a pickup truck going in the opposite direction.”

The four-year-old was taken to VCU Medical Center, where troopers say he later died from his injuries. They said he was in a child safety seat.

The crash remains under investigation.
