A 24-year-old Danville woman was killed in a Saturday morning collision, authorities reported.

Mary Elizabeth McDonald was driving a 1997 Honda Accord south in the 500 block of Kentuck Road at about 8:10 a.m. Saturday, the Danville Police Department reported in a new release. The car crossed the center line into incoming traffic and hit a tractor-trailer that was heading north.

McDonald was pronounced dead on the scene. No other injuries were reported.

“Investigators are working to determine what may have caused the sedan to leave its lane of travel,” Danville Police Department’s public information officer Lt. Richard Chivvis wrote in the release. “Based on the information we know at this time, neither speed nor alcohol appears to have been contributing factors.”

The wreck closed Kentuck Road between Halifax and Wilkerson roads until about 1 p.m.

Authorities are asking anyone with information on the crash to call the Danville Police Department at (434) 799-6510.
