VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – A driver has been charged in a fiery Virginia Beach crash that injured several people.

The crash happened on May 5 in the 4800 block of Ferrell Parkway at the intersection of Pleasant Valley Road.

MPO James Cason with the Virginia Beach Police Department said Robert E. Behnken of Virginia Beach was traveling west in a 2006 Ford pickup truck when he ran into the back of another vehicle. That caused a chain reaction with that vehicle hitting the vehicle in front of it in the same lane.

A fourth vehicle in the lane to the left was also struck, and a large fire ensued.

Behnken was issued a summons for reckless driving. Cason said speed was a factor.
