RICHMOND, Va. -- This is an updated story. Find the original article below.

Virginia State Police have now identified the victims in a deadly crash that shut down Southbound lanes of I-295 Monday afternoon.

VSP officials say that at 12:00 p.m. on Monday they were called to Interstate 295 at the 23.5 mile marker in Henrico County.

There investigators say a 2016 Honda Pilot driven by Jamala Saran White, a 51-year-old from South Carolina, was traveling in the left lane when her vehicle crossed the center lane and rear ended a 2021 Freightliner tractor-trailer.

"The vehicle then overcorrected back across all lanes of traffic to the left and struck trees," Virginia State Police would write in a release.

The front seat passenger of the Honda, 71-year-old Charlene Yvonne Brown or Florence, South Carolina, died from her injuries at the scene. Another passenger, 44 year-old Rashan Kimoni Malloy was taken, along with White, to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

All the people involved were wearing their seatbelts. The driver of the Freightliner was not injured.

Fatigue is believed to have been a factor in the crash. It remains under investigation.
