PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY, Va. -- A 4-year-old boy has died days after a two-vehicle crash in Prince Edward County.

The crash occurred July 5, 2020 at 12:27 p.m. on Route 604, less than a mile south of Route 686.

"A 2008 Chevrolet Aveo was traveling north on Route 604 when it ran off the right side of the road. The driver overcorrected, which caused the vehicle to cross back into the highway, cross the centerline and strike a southbound 2004 Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck, said a Virginia State Police spokesperson.

A 4-year-old boy who was a passenger in the Aveo was transported to VCU Medical Center, where he died from his injuries on July 7.

He was in a child safety seat at the time of the crash.

State police says the crash remains under investigation.
