GOOCHLAND, VA (WWBT) - State Police charged a Goochland man with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in a crash which killed two sisters on Sunday.
Andrew Chavis was speeding and drunk when his car struck another from behind on Interstate 64, according to State Police. Yolanda and Sheila McCowan were on their way home from a baby shower when they were killed in the crash.
Chavis is being held at the Henrico County Jail on the new charges. Troopers say when the McCowans' car hit a tree after being struck by Chavis' vehicle.
Chavis was taken to VCU Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries and charged with DUI the night of the crash.
Sheila's daughters, Kasey and Kiana, say their mother worked three-jobs to provide for her family.
"We never saw her down. We always saw her happy and she always made us happy. She kept us motivated," said Kiana.
Shelia's son, Justin, is now recovering from a broken collar bone. He and his sisters are still reeling from the crash.
"You should never forget to tell people how you feel or tell them you love them every day, because tomorrow's not promised," Kiana said.
Donations for the McCowan family can be made at any Wells Fargo bank by asking for the "McCowan Family Trust."
