Janice Haley has been identified by Virginia State Police as the victim in a fatal crash that occurred on U.S. 220 in Franklin, Virginia, Wednesday.

Haley, 28, was operating a 2001 Saturn L200 just south of Route 693 in Franklin County when the vehicle left the roadway, crossed the median and struck a 2005 Ford pickup truck.


She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials identified the driver of the Ford as Keith Shelton McConnell, 47, of Glade Hill. He was transported to the hospital with injuries sustained in the crash. The severity of his injuries were not immediately provided.

Police say McConnell was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. Haley was wearing a seat belt, a report stated.

The crash remains under investigation.

Friends and family took to social media to remember the beloved Gretna woman:

Haley’s final Facebook entry, a shared post – posted hours before the fatal crash – talked about valuing life:

People don’t got no life. Don’t want no life, and will never have a life. Worried about the wrong things in life. If I was in some people’s shoes, what somebody else doing would be the last thing on my mind. GET YOUR LIFE PEOPLE!
