Posted: Updated:

HANOVER, VA—Charges are pending against the driver involved in a deadly three-car crash that happened Friday afternoon along Interstate 295 in Hanover County.

It happened just before 2:30 p.m. along I-295 South near Mechanicsville Turnpike in Hanover County.

Police say the driver of a Toyota Camry ran off the left side of the road and struck AAA service truck and a SUV.

At the time of the crash, the driver of the SUV and the AAA worker were standing along the roadside.

The Toyota Camry stuck the AAA service truck, causing the truck to hit the driver of the SUV. The driver of that SUV, whose name has not yet been released, died at the scene.

The driver of the Toyota Camry suffered serious non-life threatening injuries and was taken by med-flight to VCU Medical Center.

A female passenger of the SUV, who was also outside of the vehicle at the time of the crash, suffered minor injures and was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital.

A six year-old boy and a three-year-old girl were taken to a hospital to be evaluated. The driver of the AAA service truck was not injured.  

At the time of the crash, the SUV was disabled on the road's left-hand shoulder. The AAA service truck was parked directly behind the vehicle with its emergency equipment activated.

Police say speed is considered a factor in the crash, and charges are pending against the driver of the Camry as state police consults with the Hanover County Commonwealth Attorney's Office.

The names of those involved in the crash have not yet been released.

The crash temporarily shutdown all southbound lanes of I-295. All lanes had reopened by 9:30 p.m.
