    One person died in a collision with a dump truck in Manassas, Va., Tuesday afternoon.

    Several vehicles were involved in the crash about 2:30 p.m. on Lee Highway near Sudley Road.

    According to the preliminary investigation, the driver of the southbound dump truck crossed into the northbound lanes and struck the rear panel of a pickup truck. The dump truck driver apparently overcorrected into the southbound lanes and back into the northbound lanes, striking an SUV head on.

    It's unknown if speed or alcohol factored in the collision.
