[ARCHIVED] 09-14-2019 Traffic Fatality

Danville Police are investigating a traffic fatality that happened today at 8:10 a.m. involving a sedan and a tractor-trailer. 

A 1997 Honda Accord driven by Mary Elizabeth McDonald, age 24 of Danville, was traveling south in the 500 block of Kentuck Rd. when her sedan crossed the center line into oncoming traffic. McDonald’s sedan struck a tractor-trailer traveling in the northbound lane. Emergency medical personnel pronounced her deceased at the scene at 8:20 a.m. 

According to the Danville Police Department’s Public Information Officer Lt. Richard Chivvis, “Investigators are working to determine what may have caused the sedan to leave its lane of travel.  Based on the information we know at this time, neither speed nor alcohol appears to have been contributing factors.”

There were no other injuries reported. The crash resulted in the closure of Kentuck Rd. between Halifax Rd. and Wilkerson Rd. for several hours. The roadway was cleared for travel by approximately 1:00 p.m.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call the Danville Police Department at 799-6510.
