 ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. - Virginia State Police say a woman was killed Tuesday afternoon when her vehicle spun out of control into the path of another vehicle.

Troopers say it happened around 3:00 p.m. on Route 13 (Lankford Highway) at Route 852 (Temperanceville Road). Authorities say a 2009 Mercury Milan was traveling northbound on Route 13 when the driver, 43-year-old Tammy L. Ayers, of Painter, VA, lost control and spun into the southbound lanes into the path of a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban. Police say Ayers suffered life threatening injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers say the driver of the Chevrolet, 26-year-old Ashley Samsel, of Milford, Del., suffered non life threatening injuries and was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center.
