      Lynchburg Woman Dies in Crash on Icy Road

      Lynchburg, VA - Police say ice may have been a factor in a crash that killed a Lynchburg woman Sunday morning.

      Kristine D. Kitts, 19, was traveling south on Boonsboro Road around 7 a.m. when she lost control and ran off the left side of the road, police say.

      Police say Kitts was driving a 2005 Suzuki Sport Utility Vehicle. The SUV crossed a driveway and went over an embankment before turning over, police said.

      Investigators say Kitts was not wearing her seatbelt and was thrown from the SUV. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

      Boonsboro Road between Raiford Circle and Overstreet Lane were closed for several hours while crews worked the crash.

      Anyone with any additional information concerning this crash is asked to contact the Lynchburg Police Department Traffic Safety Unit (455-6047) or the Central Virginia Crime Stoppers (1-888-798-5900).
