CAMPBELL Co., Va. (WSET) - Virginia State Police are investigating a two-vehicle, fatal crash in Campbell County on Wednesday.

It happened around 1 p.m. on Route 501, north of Route 655/Rocky Road.

Troopers say a Ricky Younger, 53, of Rustburg was driving south on Route 501 when he ran off the right side of the highway. He then overcorrected, which caused the car to cross the center line and hit a tractor-trailer traveling north on Route 501.

Younger was taken to Lynchburg General Hospital, where he died later that day.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
