I-95 South Back Open After Fatal Crash

FROM NBC12 NEWS STAFF

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. (WWBT) -- A 21-yer-old Colonial Heights man is dead this morning following a fatal 3 car crash along Interstate 95 Southbound. The accident happened just before 6 on Monday morning.

State Police say 21-year-old Mohammed H. Agha was traveling southbound on 95 when the accident happened. Right now, police are working to recreate the accident scene to figure out what may have caused the crash.

What we do know so far is that police believe Agha was in the center lane of 95 south, when he rear-ended a car. That sent both cars into the Jersey Wall. Then, Agha was T-boned by a third vehicle on the passenger side.

There are still several unanswered questions about the crash, that the reconstruction team is working on. "Impact damage on the vehicle, how fast they were traveling, if weather conditions, or what may be a factor in the crash," says Sgt. Thomas Molnar with the Virginia State Police.

Valencia Stith was one of the first people to see the aftermath of the crash. She called 911. "It messed me up totally. I was scared. I didn't know what to do," says Valencia.

She adds, "there were 8 cars lined up on the side and you saw 1 car headlights facing toward Burger King, the other car facing the other way with the traffic squeezing by."

The other two drivers of the other cars were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police believe all three drivers were likely driving southbound on 95, despite the accident happening near an entrance ramp.

Agha was apparently on his way to work when the crash happened. We're also told he was not wearing his seat belt.
