CHESAPEAKE, Va. — The woman driving the car which hit a VDOT truck and led to a VDOT worker being injured has died, according to her father.
28-year-old Virginia Mae Woods of Zanesville, Indiana was taken to the hospital and was initially listed in critical condition. She died Saturday afternoon.
Timothy Woods said his daughter was an organ donor and that her family planned to honor her by fulfilling her donation pledge.
The VDOT worker, Kenneth Scott Amerson, is recovering. He was assisting the driver of a disabled vehicle in Chesapeake when he was injured.
The crash happened around 11:22 p.m. Thursday night at the Interstate 664 off-ramp to Route 58 in the Bowers Hill area.
Virginia State Police said before the crash, Amerson was standing outside this VDOT truck assisting disabled vehicles on the left shoulder of the off-ramp.
Amerson had the truck's emergency warning lights on before leaving his truck.
That's when a 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier drove off the road and hit the VDOT truck, pushing it toward Amerson and hitting him.
Amerson was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
The crash is still being investigated.
