NOTTOWAY COUNTY, Va. — A Farmville woman was killed when her pickup truck ran off Route 460 Business, near Route 658, and struck a tree. Police identified the driver as 44-year-old Betsy “Candy” Evans. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

“A 1995 Chevrolet CK1500 pickup truck was traveling east on Route 460 Business when it ran off the right side of the road. The driver overcorrected the pickup, which caused it to cross over Route 460 and run off the left side of the highway and strike a tree,” a Virginia State Police spokesperson said. “A 15-year-old female passenger was flown to VCU Medical Center for treatment of serious, but non-life threatening injuries.”

The crash was reported at 8:55 a.m. Wednesday. The cause of the crash remained under investigation.

Evan’s sister Michelle Johnson said the 44-year-old was a die-hard Redskins fan and loved her animals Cinnamon and Crybaby with all her heart.

Johnson said her sister was married to her husband of 13 years, Al Evans.

“They were made for each other,” she said.

Evans leaves behind her husband, two adult step children, four grandchildren and one on the way.

Evans’ family set-up a GoFundMe page to help raise money for funeral costs.

“She unfortunately was disabled and had no life insurance,” family members wrote. “Any assistance would mean the world to her family. Your thoughts and prayers are always welcome.”
