The driver of the Honda, Madalyn T. Grant, 22, of Stevensburg, died at the scene of the crash as a result of her injuries. Grant was not wearing a seatbelt.

The driver of the tractor-trailer, a 28-year-old male, of Midlothian, suffered minor injuries and was transported to the University of Virginia Medical Center for treatment. He was wearing a seatbelt.

The crash remains under investigation.
