HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – Six people were taken to the hospital after a multi-vehicle wreck on I-64 west in Henrico County Sunday afternoon.

VDOT reported that the wreck happened at mile marker 197 between the Laburnum Avenue and Airport Drive exits.

Sgt. Keeli L. Hill with Virginia State Police said troopers were dispatched to the crash just before 5:05 p.m.

"The Trooper’s preliminary investigation reveals that a female driver of 2005 Honda Civic was traveling eastbound Interstate 64 and swerved and lost control crossing the center median and hitting head on a 2007 Toyota Camry traveling westbound," Hill said. "A 2015 Honda Civic also traveling westbound struck the Toyota Camry in the rear as a result of the first collision."

Troopers said six people were transported to an area hospital with injuries that were called not life-threatening.

The driver of the Civic was charged with reckless driving.
