According to Chesapeake Police spokesperson Kelly Elliott, 22-year-old Randi Walker was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the driver of the other vehicle, 28-year-old Johnnie Alexander, was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

According to police, Alexander was released from the hospital and charged with involuntary manslaughter. Alexander is currently being held at Chesapeake City Jail without bond.

Ashley Goodwin lives near the auto business and said she and her husband heard what sounded like an explosion and ran outside.

“We saw smoke, so I saw that cars were crashed, so I started running towards it. Andrew came behind me. I yelled, ‘Call 911!’ I went to the SUV. I went right past, because all the cars were crashed, you couldn’t really tell who was in what car, and in the SUV there was someone that was unresponsive,” she said.

Police are working to gather further details on this crash.
