HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - We have new information on a deadly accident on Interstate 295 in eastern Henrico. A second person has now died as a result of that head-on collision.

State police say 38 year old Victor Charles of Richmond died at the scene. His passenger, 27 year old Rashell Thompson, later died at VCU Medical Center.

It's unclear why his car crossed the median. State police say weather was not a factor.
