RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - One person is dead and eight others injured after a chain-reaction crash in Powhatan.

State police say it happened just after 10 p.m. Sunday along Route 60.

Investigators say a Hyundai Elantra sedan slowed down to make a left turn and was rear-ended, causing the car to get hit by an oncoming truck.

The driver of the sedan died on the way to the hospital. He was later identified as Michael Lloyd Eggleston, a 58 year old Powhatan resident.

A 14-year-old in the back seat was seriously hurt but is expected to survive.

Seven people inside the truck were hurt, but none seriously.

Angelina Brooks, a 19-year-old Powhatan resident, was the driver of the vehicle who initially rear-ended the sedan. She’s been charged with reckless driving.
