HAMPTON, Va. -- State police have released the name of a Chesterfield woman killed after her car was rear-ended after she broke down on Interstate 64 in Hampton Saturday evening.

Sgt. Michelle Anaya with Virginia State Police said troopers received a call about a sedan driving slowly in the second lane of I-64 west of Mercury Boulevard just after 7:35 p.m.

"Less than a minute later, the Communications Center received another call of a two-vehicle accident... east of Magruder Boulevard," Anaya said.

Officials said 20-year-old Keira M. Reese-Johnson's car was rear-ended by an SUV after it broke down and stopped in the travel lane.

Reese-Johnson, of the 6900 block of Lake Caroline Drive in Chesterfield, was critically injured and taken to Riverside Regional Hospital where she died of her injuries, Anaya said.

Troopers said an 11-year-old child in the SUV was also transported to the hospital.

"Alcohol nor speed were contributing factors in the incident," Anaya said. "No charges will be placed."

Officials said the crash remains under investigation.
