The accident occurred on Wednesday, March 18, at the corner of Red Hills Parkway and Skyline Drive.
Police said a 47-year-old woman was driving a 1992 white and red Ford SuperCab and was moving from the outside lane to the inside lane. The woman was trying to avoid Dominion gas line construction on the right side of the rain-soaked parkway.

The woman was cited for driving with a denied license.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
