Woman dies in two-vehicle accident

A female from the Winchester area died in a two-vehicle collision in the area of Valley Avenue and Jubal Early Drive at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

Police were withholding the name of the victim as of Thursday evening pending positive identification and notifying family members.

Sgt. Frank Myrtle of the Winchester Police Department said a 2004 Ford pickup truck struck the 2008 Nissan mini-van in the driver's front side area. Myrtle said the pickup, driven by Leslie M. Wylie, 30, of Knoxville, Tenn., was traveling east on Jubal Early Drive when her vehicle crossed the median strip and hit the mini-van as it was traveling west on Jubal Early.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, Myrtle said. Wylie and two children in the mini-van, ages 3 and 5, were taken to Winchester Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, he said.

No charges have been filed so far, and the cause of the accident remains under investigation.

Myrtle said traffic was blocked on Jubal Early Drive from Valley Avenue to South Loudon Street until about 3:30 p.m. The Winchester City Sheriff's Office and Virginia State Police are working with the city police on the investigation, Myrtle said.
