ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — A man died after a two-vehicle crash in Isle of Wight County Monday.

The accident happened around 2:40 p.m. at the intersection of Jenkins Mill Road and Carsville Highway.

Virginia State Police say a 2016 Dodge Dart, driven by Danielle T. Bess, was at the intersection and pulled out to make a left turn in front of a 2000 Dodge Dakota driving eastbound on Carsville. The driver of the Dodge Dakota, who police identified as Lessly Artis, hit Bess, lost control of the vehicle and ran off the road.

Both drivers were not wearing their seat belts. They were taken to local hospitals. Artis was then transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, where he died Tuesday morning from the injuries he suffered in the crash.

Alcohol was not a contributing factor in the accident.

Bess suffered non life-threatening injuries and was charged with failure to yield right of way.
