Bassett woman killed in crash
Monday, August 4, 2014
A Bassett woman was killed early Sunday afternoon in a head-on collision in Collinsville.
Pamela Hope Thornburg, 50, was taken to Memorial Hospital in Martinsville and was pronounced dead a short time after the crash, said State Police Sgt. Robert Carpentieri.
The accident occurred about 12:45 p.m. on South Daniels Creek Road, about a quarter mile west of its intersection with Virginia Avenue.
Carpentieri said the preliminary investigation showed a 1988 Jaguar driven by Thornburg allegedly crossed the median and collided head-on with a 1991 Jeep Cherokee.
The identification and condition of the driver of the Jeep were not available Sunday.
Police said Thornburg was wearing a safety belt.
No further information about the crash was available late Sunday, and the crash remains under investigation.
