A fatal crash Wednesday night closed down one lane of Route 29 South near the intersection with Plank Road in Albemarle County.
Police say that just after 7:00pm a car going south bound on Route 29 ran off the left side of the road into the median, and struck a tree.
The driver was killed and a child was taken to UVa Medical Center with minor injuries.
The cause of the crash is unknown, but a medical examiner and the crash reconstruction team were on scene trying to figure out what happened.
One lane was closed for several hours while the crews worked to clear the scene.
