YORK COUNTY — The Virginia State Police (VSP) are investigating a two-vehicle crash that resulted in one fatality and two serious injuries.

On Friday, Nov. 12 at approximately 5:05 p.m., VSP responded to a two-vehicle crash on Route 199, west of Lodge Road overpass.

According to VSP, the driver of a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica, 23-year-old Kaila Montel-Hawkins of Hampton, was traveling eastbound on Route 199 when she lost control of the vehicle.

She ran off the roadway and drove through the median into the westbound lanes of travel, striking a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu head-on. The force of the impact pushed both vehicles off the roadway against the guardrail. 

Montel-Hawkins was transported to Riverside Doctors’ Hospital Williamsburg, where she succumbed to her injuries.

Her male passenger and the male driver of the Chevrolet Malibu were both taken to Riverside Regional Hospital with serious, but not life-threatening injuries. 

VSP said that neither alcohol nor speed were contributing factors in the crash, and all parties were wearing seatbelts.
