LOUISA, VA (WWBT) - A man died in a three-vehicle crash on I-64 that occurred on Sunday night.

Virginia State Police responded to the crash at westbound I-64 just before 9:30 p.m.

An investigation revealed that an adult male - identified Monday as Kenneth T. Owens, 56, of Waynesboro - driving a Nissan SUV was traveling westbound when he hit an abandoned disabled vehicle on the shoulder. The Nissan overturned several times, running off the road right.

A Honda CRV was then damaged after hitting debris from the crash.

An infant traveling in the back seat was properly secured in a child safety seat. The infant was transported to the hospital via Medflight for the treatment of minor injuries.

No other injuries were reported.

A short time later, another person died in a separate crash on westbound I-64.
