Virginia State Police said the crash occurred just before 7 p.m. on Route 635 (Big Stoney Creek Road) in Giles County, which is located on the West Virginia state line.

The investigation found that a 2003 Ford Econoline van ran off the right side of the road and struck an embankment before overturning.
