The person killed in a single-vehicle crash Friday night in Nelson County has been identified.

A state trooper arrived about 10 minutes later to the the 1600 block of Davis Creek Lane, which is located just west of U.S. 29 and about two miles southwest of Woods Mill. Authorities said in a news release Saturday that Spencer was not wearing a seat belt and said the crash is still being investigated.
