UPDATE: Deadly accident on Route 460

By Evrod Cassimy – bio | email

PRINCE GEORGE, VA (WWBT) - In Prince George County Monday night two cars collided, killing one person, critically injuring another and backing up traffic for hours. It happened on Route 460, just east of Route 295.

The name of the deceased was released today as Tiny R. McCray, 46. She was driving a four door 1996 Buick Century.

Authorities said the second car was a 2008 Toyota four door. A second person was taken to VCU Medical Center and is still alive, according to Petersburg police.

A third vehicle was announced to be a Freightliner box truck.

Prince George County authorities will likely have more information Wednesday. There is a possibility that alcohol was a factor in this crash but officials have not determined on whose part yet.

Authorities are still trying to figure out why the two vehicles crashed. One driver died instantly, the other was flown to a nearby hospital. Both directions of Rt. 460 were closed for nearly six hours.

"I've been sitting here about two hours, going on two hours," said truck driver, Gerald Scott. "They said it was a head on collision but they didn't say whether it was a truck or cars or whatever."

Scott has been on the road since 9:30 Monday morning. He was heading home when he got stuck in the traffic pileup as Prince George County police work to investigate this accident.

"We haven't had an accident like this on 460 for some time," said firefighter, Andy Aigner. "Prince George Police and VDOT are working to divert traffic around to try and ease some of the congestion."

In the meantime Scott and other drivers must wait patiently.

"I hate cause you know you don't want to see people get hurt but it's just kind of nerve wrecking to get by but I hope the people will be alright," said Scott.
