Fatal Traffic Accidents

A Richmond man was killed in an overnight crash on the city's southside. According to police, the accident happened at the intersection of Warrick Road and Labrook Concourse shortly before 10pm Sunday night.

Police have identified the victim as 47-year-old Everett Davis. Investigators tell us speed may have been a factor in the crash. The scene was cleared about two hours later.

Police say there were six other traffic deaths reported across Virginia over the weekend, including Sunday morning's double fatal in Sussex County.

Police have identified the two victims as 57-year-old Nellie Moody and 23-year-old Travis Cherry, both of North Carolina. State Police tell us they were traveling south on Interstate 95 when they hit a guard rail and were struck by a tractor trailer. That truck's driver tells 8News he had no idea what was happening.

"We were riding down the highway and I saw dust. I saw my partner he was out in the other lane and I asked him what was going on. I saw that dust, and then I was there," says William Jackson.

Police say a second truck then hit the car, pinning the front of the vehicle under the truck.

The highway death toll in Virginia now stands at 519 compared to 475 at this time last year.
