HILLSVILLE, Va. (AP) - Virginia State Police say one driver was killed and the other driver was charged with DUI after a two-car collision in Carroll County.

Troopers said in a news release that the crash happened Friday afternoon on Route 58 in Hillsville. Police say a Jeep Cherokee driven by 26-year-old Amanda Huff of Hillsville was traveling west when it crossed the center line.

Authorities say the Jeep crashed head-on with an eastbound Ford Taurus driven by 48-year-old Brenda Ayers of Meadows of Dan. Troopers say the Jeep ran off the highway, rolled down an embankment and hit several trees.

Police say Ayers died at the scene. Law enforcers say Huff was treated for minor injuries at a hospital.

Huff was charged with driving under the influence.
