i-64 Traffic Accident Today Virginia 3 People Dead: Early on Friday morning, emergency workers were rushed to the site of a tragic collision between a bus and a tractor-trailer on I-64 in York. The incident was reported at about 1:40 a.m. on Friday at milepost 241 on I-64 westbound, close to Colonial Parkway, according to Virginia State Police.

According to a Friday afternoon report from VSP, the tractor-trailer and the bus were both moving through the eastbound lanes of I-64. At milepost 241, the tractor-trailer and bus collided as the bus entered the tractor course. According to police, the tractor-trailer was thrown over the side of the highway and into the median, where it collided with a barrier.

 

Officials claim that at the time of the collision, 22 passengers on the commercial bus were not wearing seatbelts. Three people—two men and one woman—have been identified as deceased. Each vehicle’s other passengers and drivers also sustained minor to non-life-threatening wounds. Each was brought to a nearby hospital for medical attention.

Must Check:

Family members verified to 10 On Your Side that the three people killed in the collision were Montia Bouie, 19, Jontae Russell, 21, and Xzavier Evans, 25. The two males, according to family relatives, are brothers. An enjoyable journey to Richmond and back with friends to mark Evans’s beginning of his music career abruptly turned tragedy.

“Xzavier had a strong interest in music. He has two passions in life: music and his son. According to Evans’ older brother Daqwone Hill, “He wanted to be able to share his music with the world and to make a living off of it so he could provide for his family, his child. Tells 10 On Your Side Hill Evans had aspirations of being a successful rapper. His family is inconsolable.

He cherished every one. He was a kind man. I’ve never gotten off the phone with him without him telling me he loves me, Hill recounted. Right now, the family is getting ready for two funerals. They were both mama’s boys. Hill said they were so devoted to their mother” that we could identify Jontae by the tattoo of his mother’s name on his arm.

To find out if they were receiving care at Riverside Hospital, 10 On Your Side contacted the facility. The hospital refused to divulge how many crash victims were there, telling WAVY that “our top focus is the health and safety of Riverside patients and their loved ones.” The final westbound lane that was closed reopened on Friday night, but the eastbound lanes had been reopened by 10:45 a.m. In agreement with the Commonwealth’s Attorney for York County, the police indicate pending charges.
