HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — A 16-year-old is dead and another is now in stable condition after their moped was involved in a four-vehicle crash in Hampton. 

The crash happened around 7:20 p.m. Monday at the intersection of West Pembroke Avenue and Powhatan Parkway, according to police. 

Officers arrived at the scene and found that the moped, a Chevrolet pickup truck, a Hertz rental box truck and a Nissan Maxima had all been involved in a crash. 

The two 16-year-olds, who were both on the moped, were in critical condition at the scene. They were both taken to the hospital, but the driver died shortly after arrival. 

The family of 16-year-old Daquan Robinson confirmed he passed away last night. They say he was a good kid, who played football for Hampton High School.

Police say the passenger remains in critical condition. 

The driver of the Chevrolet, a 60-year-old Hampton man, and the driver and passenger of the Hertz truck were also taken to the hospital to be treated for non life-threatening injuries. 

An investigation revealed the moped was stopped on West Pembroke Avenue, attempting to make a left-hand turn to head south on Powhatan Parkway when the Chevrolet, traveling west on West Pembroke Avenue, struck the rear of the moped. 

The moped and Chevrolet continued into the intersection, where both hit the Nissan Maxima, which was making a left-hand turn from Powhatan Parkway east onto West Pembroke Avenue. 

The Chevrolet and moped then hit the Hertz truck, which was stopped at the light on West Pembroke Avenue (eastbound), before coming to a stop.

Police say the crash remains under investigation, which includes interviewing witnesses. At this time, there are no charges pending.

Officers say rain was not a factor during the crash.
