VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – A two-vehicle crash on Princess Anne Road  killed one person and left another seriously injured Saturday morning.

According to a police spokesman, around 7:30 a.m. a pickup truck traveling north on Princess Anne Road near Jarvis Road veered off the road. When the woman driving the truck over-corrected, it crossed into the southbound lanes of Princess Anne Road  and hit another pickup truck head-on, causing one truck to catch fire.
