A 10-year-old girl was killed in a two-vehicle accident that injured four others in Gladeville late Wednesday afternoon.

The crash occurred just after 4:30 p.m. on Gladeville Road.

Authorities said 37-year-old Andrea Weaver was traveling southbound on the roadway when she lost control while negotiating a curve.

Upon overcorrecting, Weaver crashed into a SUV that was traveling in the northbound land.

The SUV, which was driven by a 17-year-old, struck Weaver's passenger side front door before both vehicles came to a rest.

Ten-year-old Linsey Weaver was killed.

Andrea Weaver and a 12-year-old boy both sustained injuries.

The juvenile driver of the second vehicle and a 14-year-old passenger were also injured.

No charges have been filed.
