PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, Va. -- Authorities said speed and alcohol may have played a role in a crash that killed one person and left another critically injured injured in Prince George County early Saturday morning.

Police said officers were called to a crash in the 13800 block of South Crater Road just after 12 a.m.

Officer Alexis Grochmal with Prince George County Police said a sedan was headed northbound on South Crater Road when the car ran off the road and hit two trees.

The driver, 50-year-old Carol Murley of Prince George, sustained life-threatening injuries, Grochmal said

Murley was med-flighted to VCU Medical Center, police said.

The passenger, 47-year-old Laura Davis of Prince George, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

"Investigators preliminary findings revealed the driver and passenger were wearing seatbelts, and speed, as well as alcohol, may have been a contributing factor to the crash," Grochmal said.
