CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC)—The Chesterfield County Police Department is investigating a two-vehicle car accident that occurred late Sunday night and put four people in the hospital.
At 11:12 p.m. on Dec. 29, two cars—the occupants of which knew each other—were traveling south on the 2100 block of South Providence Road when one of the vehicles attempted to pass the other. The two cars, which were coming from the same location, collided and ran off the road.
"I heard a couple of sirens," says resident Frank Tibbetts. "There must have been at least 10 police cars and everything else out here. Some of them stayed out until about 5 this morning."
Kristopher Leon Holliday, 18, of North Chesterfield, was transported to Chippenham Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Three other people, including a woman who was ejected from the backseat of one of the cars, were transported to VCU Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Their identities are being withheld at their families' request.
Police have not provided further details, but say the accident is still under investigation.
Frank Tibbetts lives on Providence Road and says these kinds of crashes happen frequently in this area because drivers don't respect the road.
"I've seen cars pass two or three cars at a time going at a high rate of speed," he says. "Maybe over 35. That's a lot of times I've seen."
Tibbetts' concern continues to grow as he continues to see crashes on Providence Road.
"Last night was a very serious accident. And not only that, but that serious accident this morning where a car ran in the ditch, and turned over."
