Erica Fray is Killed in a Car Crash on I-264 in Norfolk

On the Interstate where cars often reach high speeds, an improper lane change can be dangerous. We were saddened to read about how a woman was killed in car crash on I-264 in Norfolk.

Virginia State Police responded to the crash at 2:49 p.m. on Friday past the Military Highway exit, close to the I-64 interchange.

State police say a 2007 Dodge Caliber was traveling east on I-264 when a white BMW came up in a lane behind. The police press release said both the Dodge and the BMW started changing to the right lane simultaneously. The Dodge driver swerved to avoid the BMW and lost control of the car.

The Dodge spun around and veered off the right side of I-264, where it struck the jersey wall.

Police said 36-year-old Erica N. Fray, a passenger from Norfolk, died of injuries she received in the impact.

The driver of the Dodge was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital for the treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The vehicles did not come into contact with each other. However, Virginia State Police would like to speak to anyone who has information about the white BMW to contact them.

Unanswered Questions As Woman is Killed in a Car Crash on I-264 in Norfolk

Our thoughts are with the family of Erica Fray. A passenger is almost never responsible for a crash that can prove fatal or leave them with serious injuries.

Far too many passengers pay a heavy price for mistakes made by the driver of the car or the truck they are in or the actions of another driver.

I-264 in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and Portsmouth is a busy and hazardous highway where traffic often travels too fast.

Earlier this year, a woman was killed on I-264 in Virginia Beach by a driver who was later charged with a DUI.

The victim was stopped with her warning lights on when she was hit from behind on the interstate.
