The accident happened on Route 863, near Danville, around six- tonight.
Dead is 39-year old Michael Shelton. State Police say Shelton was travelling West when he apparently ran off the road, lost control of his Dodge Colt and crossed the center line.
Authorities believe the driver of the other car, 33 year old Teresa McGuire of Danville had little time to react because there were few skid marks.
McGuire was taken to Danville Regional Medical Center-- where she is listed in critical condition following surgery.
State Police say there was NO evidence of alcohol or excessive speed.

And finally tonight, David Letterman doesn't have to turn green with envy over Dennis Rodman's hair.
That's because the comedian and the Chicago Bulls star are now a matching pair.
Tonight Rodman gave Letterman a quick spray with his trademark hair coloring.
No word yet if Dave's going to follow it up with the full body tattoos.
Stay tuned and you can see Rodman on the Late Show coming up next.
