Man dies in I-95 crash in Lorton

A 30-year-old man from New York was killed Saturday morning when the car in which he was riding went off Interstate 95 in Lorton, hit a tree and overturned, according to Virginia State Police.

The victim was identified as Rashid K. Humphreys, of Yonkers, N.Y. Police said he was in the front passenger seat, was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at Sentara Potomac Hospital in Woodbridge.

The single-vehicle accident involving a 2009 Honda Civic occurred about 5:45 a.m. in the highway’s southbound lanes, said Corinne Geller, a spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police. The southbound lanes were closed until about 8:30 a.m.

Geller said the driver of the car, identified as Thomas J. Smith of Woodbridge, was charged with reckless driving. Both Smith and a back-seat passenger, Robert D. Brown Jr., of Fredericksburg, suffered minor injuries and did not go to a hospital, the spokeswoman said. Their ages were not available.
