The preliminary investigation revealed that 19-year-old Jason Talbott was driving a Ford F-550 that was hauling a trailer with a skid-steer loader westbound on Huguenot Trail. Police said Talbott brakes to avoid striking a vehicle in front of him and veered left crossing the center of the highway into eastbound travel lanes.

The Volkswagen SUV driven by Wolf was struck head on. Wolf died at the scene. She was wearing her seat belt.

Talbott has been charged with reckless driving and driving suspended.

The crash remains under investigation with the assistance of the Virginia State Police Crash Reconstruction Team and the Safety Division Motor Carrier Unit.
