VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Funeral services for a two-year-old girl and her infant sister were announced Monday after both children died from injuries suffered in a fiery multi-vehicle crash on I-264 west at Rosemont Road.
The funeral for Ajournee Pearl-Bell and her 5-month-old sister, Alegacee Pearl-Bell will take place at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 27 at the Metropolitan Funeral Service, Granby Chapel, Calvary Cemetery.
Ajournee and Alegacee were in the vehicle with their mother and father when the crash happened. Virginia State Police say they were in a 2002 Nissan Sentra traveling on I-264 West when the car broke down in the travel lane. The car was then struck by a 2008 Chevy Silverado, causing the Nissan to spin around and collide with an HRT bus that was not in service.
The car went up into flames and was rapidly engulfed in fire. A 31-year-old woman, a 28-year-old man and 2-year-old Ajournee were rescued from the vehicle, but Alegacee died in the fire.
Ajournee was being cared for in ICU at CHKD before she passed away. At last check, their mother, LaTisha Pearl was in the ICU. The girls’ father was not seriously injured in the crash.
A GoFundMe has been setup to help the family. You can also donate to the “Pearl-Bell Family Fund” at any Towne Point Bank location.
