Fatal Accident

Virginia State Police say a Winchester woman killed in a car crash was apparently eating when she lost control of her vehicle.

Trooper Richard McClanahan says 40-year-old Iris Paige-Payne died Thursday evening after her car ran off Route Seven near Berryville and into an embankment, then flipped several times.

McClanahan says food found in the car led investigators to believed that the victim was eating at the time of the accident. She was found dead at the scene.
