A Sandston woman was fatally injured Tuesday after her car ran off Interstate 64 in Henrico County and crashed into trees, state police said. A young child riding with her survived.
The victim was identified as Regina Howard Thomas, 69.
Police said Thomas was traveling eastbound in a 2010 Lexus ES when, according to witnesses, it “gradually ran off the road” and struck trees at the 194-mile marker about 12:50 p.m. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
A child believed to be 7-years-old who was properly restrained in the vehicle was taken to VCU Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, police said.
The crash remains under investigation.
