JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — A woman from Richmond was killed Tuesday afternoon in a crash on Interstate 64 in James City County.
Virginia State Police say 47-year-old Darlene Therese Harris, of Richmond, was driving a 2004 Honda Odyssey at a high rate of speed. Traffic had slowed because of an accident, and state police say Harris hit the back of a Toyota 4Runner.
State police say Harris’ car went off the road and hit an abutment — or support structure — of the Barnes Road overpass, which caused her car to overturn several times into a tree line.
Harris was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected in the crash. She was pronounced dad at the scene.
Troopers were alerted to the crash just after 12:30 p.m. All westbound lanes on I-64 were closed following the crash.
State police say the driver of the 4Runner and two other occupants were not injured in the crash. Alcohol was not a factor.
