WILLIAMSBURG — Investigators are uncertain what caused a single-vehicle fatality wreck Sunday involving a Waverly High School student.

Ruby-Ann Rose Milliken, 16, Waverly, apparently was traveling westbound in the 1000 block of Douglas Road, southeast of Williamsburg, when her vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree about 3:30 p.m. Sunday, according to a release from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.

Milliken, who was the only occupant of the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene, the sheriff’s office said.

Jeff Richards, Franklin County sheriff, said Monday investigators had not determined what caused Milliken’s vehicle to leave the road.

Milliken was wearing a seat belt, the sheriff confirmed.

Milliken was listed as a sophomore and a captain of the Waverly High School volleyball team, according to maxpreps.com. School officials would not comment Monday, but confirmed Milliken was a student.
