TASLEY, Va.- Virginia State Police say one person died in a late Thursday night crash involving a pickup, a van and a tractor-trailer in the Accomack County community of Tasley. 

Police said a 2006 Ford F-150, driven by 63-year-old Linda D. Stevens of Accomack County, was driving a Ford F-150 pickup on Dardy Road when she turned onto Route 13 and into the path of a Chevrolet van. Police said that as the van's occupants attempted to get out of the van, it was struck by a Freightliner tractor-trailer that was traveling northbound on Route 13. 

Troopers said the backseat passenger of the van, identified as 19-year-old Austin C. Rainey, of Chapel Hill, N.C., was killed upon impact. The van was occupied by four other occupants who were able to exit the vehicle prior to impact. 

Stevens was charged with failure to yield right of way, according to police. They said family members have been notified.
