HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — A 25-year-old is dead after a two-vehicle crash on the interstate in Hampton.
State police tell 10 On Your Side that the crash happened in the eastbound lanes of I-64, west of North King Street, around 5:50 p.m. on Saturday, June 11.
A 2014 Ford Fusion was traveling eastbound when the driver slowed to a stop because of traffic on the interstate. That’s when a 2011 Mercedes SUV hit the back of the Ford at a high rate of speed, forcing the car into other lanes of the traffic.
The driver of the car was taken to Riverside Regional Hospital. Her passenger, 25-year-old Corey Jacob Sargent, died at the scene. He was a Virginia Beach resident.
Police say the driver of the Mercedes was not hurt.
At this time charges are pending and under review by the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, state police added.
