Police identify 4 people killed in crash at Norfolk airport


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Police have identified four people who were killed in a fiery crash at Norfolk International Airport in late-September.

Norfolk police said in a news release Thursday 28-year-old Christal V. Uwejeyan was driving a 2018 Dodge Journey SUV toward the departures area of the airport on Sept. 21 when she lost control and drove off the roadway.

The SUV struck a tree and caught fire.

Uwejeyan and three people who were inside the SUV — 22-year-old Kiara Y. Mobley, 22-year-old Shakeeral M. Lawrence, and 30-year-old Derwin A. Perry — died at the scene.

This comes one day after police informed local media outlets they had been told the process of identifying the four people would “take some time.”
