State Police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred on Oct. 20, 2017, at 1:35 p.m. on Route 23, less than a mile south of Route 823.

Police say a 2004 Chevrolet Impala was traveling south on Route 23 when it ran off the right side of the road. The driver overcorrected which caused the Impala to cross over the southbound lanes, run off the left side and overturn in the median.

The driver, Amanda R. Vanover, 43, of Big Stone Gap, Va., was transported to the hospital where she later died.

She was not wearing a seatbelt when the incident occurred.

The crash remains under investigation.
