A 22-year-old Stevensburg woman died in a Wednesday afternoon wreck in Orange County, Virginia State Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Brent Coffee says. 

Madalyn T. Grant died at the scene of the wreck on Zachary Taylor Highway just north of True Blue Road. 

Grant, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was northbound on Zachary Taylor at 2:41 p.m. when her 2003 Honda Odyssey rear-ended with a 2015 Kenworth tractor-trailer that was also traveling north. The tractor-trailer stopped for another vehicle that was making a left turn. The impact occurred as the tractor-trailer began moving.

The driver of the tractor-trailer, a 28-year-old male, of Midlothian, VA, suffered minor injuries and was transported to UVA Medical Center for treatment. The male was wearing a seatbelt.

The crash remains under investigation.
