A single-vehicle accident on Route 360 resulted in the death of a Chesterfield woman, according to Virginia State Police (VSP).

The driver, Melanie G. Foreman, 21, died at the scene, according to police. She was wearing a seat belt.

According to VSP, the accident occurred April 18, shortly after 11 p.m. and less than a mile west of Route 710.

“A 2007 Honda Accord was traveling east on Route 360 when it ran off the right side of the highway,” VSP officials cited in a release. “The driver over-corrected, which caused the vehicle to re-enter the eastbound lanes, spin around, run off the right side and strike a tree.”

The crash remains under investigation, according to police.
