Press release from Virginia State Police

NEW KENT, VA (WWBT) - One man is dead following a single vehicle crash that took place Friday morning July 15, 2011.  At 9:41 a.m., Virginia State Police Trooper Miles was called to the scene on Interstate 64 westbound approximately 1 mile west of Route 106, at the 209 mile marker.   

A 2000 Freightliner tractor was pulling a 2003 ALFA Camper Trailer when the front left tire of the tractor blew.  The vehicle ran off the left side of the roadway and struck several trees before overturning onto the right side. 

The driver, Gary L. Charcalia, 49, died at the scene.  The front seat passenger, Brenda L. Charcalia, 43, suffered serious non-life threatening injuries and three other teenagers suffered minor injuries.  All were transported by ambulance to VCU Medical Center in Richmond, Va.  No one in the vehicle was wearing a safety belt at the time of the crash. 

The New Kent County Sheriff's Office assisted at the scene with traffic control.  Traffic was diverted off of Interstate 64 westbound at Exit 211 and 214 onto Route 60.  The roadway was re-opened at 2:30 p.m. this afternoon.  The family and family friend were traveling from Virginia Beach back to Erie, Pa. at the time of the crash, which remains under investigation.
