CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash in Chesterfield County on Wednesday.

Police said a 1999 Ford F-Series dump truck was traveling on Genito Road when it went partially off the road. The driver overcorrected, crossed into oncoming traffic and struck a 2009 Honda Accord.

The driver of the Honda, 56-year-old Karen E. Giles, of the 5600 block of West Creek Road in Amelia County, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the dump truck was not injured.

Giles was a member of the Amelia Emergency Squad and was involved with the Old Dominion EMS Alliance. 

The Amelia Emergency Squad told 8News back in February they were Karen Giles’ second family. She spent a lot of time volunteering, as Giles was devoted to caring for people and even motivated others to do the same. 

The crash forced authorities to close Genito Road between Otterdale Road and Mount Hermon Road.

Police said that the investigation will continue but they do not believe that speed or alcohol were factors. 

Anyone with information should contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660 or through the P3 app.
