One killed in crash on Interstate 95 in Stafford County

One person was killed in a multi-vehicle crash that shut down a portion of Interstate 95 in Stafford County for several hours Tuesday morning, authorities said.

Virginia State Police said the chain-reaction crash happened just before 5:30 a.m. when a Mercury sedan traveling south on I-95 ran off the left side of the roadway. The car crossed the median, struck an embankment and continued into the northbound lanes of I-95.

The car then collided with a Toyota sedan, which in turn struck a Chevrolet crossover vehicle and a two-axle box truck, police said in a news release.

The driver of the Mercury, identified as 20-year-old Ty Shaun L. Holloway of Hampton, Va., was taken to Stafford Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

His passenger, 20-year-old Dejonniza Q. White of the Bronx, N.Y., died at the scene, police said.

The driver of the Toyota was taken to Stafford Hospital, where he was treated and released. The drivers of the other two vehicles were not injured in the crash.

Holloway has been charged with reckless driving, police said.

The cause of the crash, which closed the northbound travel lanes between Route 17 and Centreport Parkway for several hours, remains under investigation.
