Albemarle County Police are investigating a fatal crash in the northbound lanes of Route 29 / Monacan Trail in North Garden.
At 8:07 a.m. Monday, the Fatal Crash Reconstruction Team was called to the 4000 block of Monacan Trail, just south of Plank Road.
Investigators say the driver of a pickup truck, 42-year-old Stephany Spicer of Lynchburg, ran off the right side of the road, over-corrected, and crashed into a tree in the median.
Spicer was pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash remains under investigation, but at this time it does not appear that speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
Investigators say Spicer was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash.
This marks the sixth fatal crash this year in Albemarle County.
