HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - A California woman is charged with DUI after a deadly accident on Interstate 64 Wednesday morning.

State Police say a 2018 Nissan Altima was traveling west on I-64 around 2 a.m. on November 27. As it took the ramp at Exit 178 for West Broad Street, the car ran off the right side of the road and hit a tree.

A passenger, 33-year-old Denise S. Abraham, was transported to Henrico Doctor’s Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

A second passenger, a 26-year-old woman, is being treated at VCU Medical Center for life-threatening injuries.

The 29-year-old driver, Sheonta D. Malbrough, was also injured and transported to Henrico Doctor’s Hospital. She is expected to recover, and has been charged with DUI and involuntary manslaughter. State Police say it appears speed was also a factor in the crash.

All three women in the car were from Sacramento, California.

Malbrough also faces an involuntary manslaughter charge.

The crash remains under investigation.
