Crash kills woman in King George

Virginia State Police are investigating the third fatal crash in King George County in less than two weeks.

According to state police spokesman Sgt. Steve Vick, Trooper R.G. Garnett responded to a two-vehicle crash at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of State Route 624 (Salem Church Road) and State Route 3 in King George.

A 2010 Chevrolet Silverado traveling west on Route 3 crossed the center line and struck a 2005 Buick head-on, Vick said.

The driver of the 2005 Buick, Teresa M. Martin, 47, of West Virginia was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Chevrolet, 29-year-old Andrew V. Combs of Montross, was transported to Mary Washington Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He was wearing a seat belt, police said.

Combs was charged with reckless driving. Speed and alcohol were not considered factors in the crash.

On Aug. 22, King George resident Ryan Pitts, 34, and his nephew, 19-year-old Bryan Pitts, were killed when the 2010 Chrysler van they were in ran off the road and struck a tree on Port Conway Road, a mile south of Route 3.

The next day, King George resident Lamont Beverly, 39, was killed when his 2003 Toyota ran off the side of Eden Road and overturned.

Speed were considered factors in both of those crashes, police said.
