UPDATE: Death toll rises to three in Chase City crash / December 12, 2017
A third person has died as the result of a head-on auto collision Monday around 5 p.m. on Route 47 near Chase City.

Donald L. McInturf of Chase City, 68, succumbed to his injuries Tuesday night as he was undergoing treatment at VCU Medical Center in Richmond. His death was reported around 11 p.m. by Virginia State Police.

Mr. McInturf was riding in a 2010 Buick Enclave driven by his late wife, Julia, when the vehicle crossed over the center line of Route 47 and ran head-on into a 1997 Ford F-250 operated by Steve W. Parks of Chase City. The pickup truck was traveling in the northbound lane, a short distance from Twin Drive, when it was struck by Mrs. McInturf's southbound vehicle. Mrs. InInturf and Mr. Parks both died at the scene Monday.

Both McInturfs were veteran teachers with the Mecklenburg County school division. Mrs. McInturf was a history teacher and former athletic director at Park View High School; Mr. McInturf was a teacher and coach at Bluestone High School.

Mr. Parks was a Chase City building contractor who was well-known in the community as a master craftsman for his woodworking and cabinet-making skills.

The McInturfs' daughter, Leslie, was also a passenger in the Buick and suffered life-threatening injuries in the crash, according to State Police. She was transported first to VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital in South Hill and then to the VCU hospital in Richmond for treatment.

State Police say all four individuals caught up in the crash were wearing their seat belts when the collision happened.
