By BULLETIN STAFF REPORTS -
A Ridgeway woman was killed Sunday in a two-vehicle wreck in the Spencer area, according to the Virginia State Police.
Sandra Kay Mitchell, 39, of Ridgeway, died as a result of her injuries, said state police Trooper R.L. Via.
The wreck happened at 6:15 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of U.S. 58 and Spencer-Preston Road, Via said.
Mitchell's daughter, 20-year-old Ashley Victoria Mitchell of Ridgeway, was driving a 2000 Mitsubishi GT west on U.S. 58 and was making a right turn onto Spencer-Preston Road when the Mitsubishi collided with a 1994 Honda Civic, the trooper said.
The Civic, which was traveling south on Spencer-Preston, was driven by Brandon T. Young, 24, of Martinsville, Via said. Young was ejected from that vehicle, the trooper said.
Both vehicles were totaled.
The investigation is continuing, Via said.
