A car crash Sunday afternoon on Interstate 64 killed a Charlottesville man and injured four others. Police say the crash was not weather related.
The two-vehicle crash happened on I-64 at the 120 mile marker in Albemarle County at 2:30 p.m.
Virginia State Police say a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu had run out of gas and was stopped on the paved right shoulder of the eastbound lanes of I-64.
A 2002 Ford Explorer was traveling east on I-64 when it ran off the left side of I-64, crossed back across the lanes, ran off the right side of the eastbound lanes and hit the stopped Malibu.
The 16-year-old male driver of the Ford Explorer and his 40-year-old father were both wearing seat belts and were both taken to the University of Virginia Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the Malibu, 32-year-old Carleisha Washington, of Troy, and her front seat passenger, identified by police only as a adult female, were also taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The back seat passenger, 36-year-old Djarad Robinson, of Charlottesville, was taken to hospital where he later died.
Charges are pending at this time. The crash remains under investigation.
