A King George resident is dead following a two vehicle crash on Route 301 at the intersection of Route 623 in King George County.
At 2:48 p.m., Aug. 19, 2012, Virginia State Police responded to the crash scene after the driver of a 2000 Saturn station wagon failed to yield the right-of-way at a stop sign and was struck by the driver of a 2005 Nissan Altima. The impact caused the Saturn to overturn before coming to rest.
