RICHMOND, Va. -- Authorities have released the name of a 52-year-old woman killed Thursday night in a wreck along Interstate 95 in Richmond.

Troopers were called just after 8:15 p.m. to a crash on I -95 south at the ramp to Maury Street, according to Sgt. Dylan Davenport with Virginia State Police.

"The preliminary investigation indicates a 2007 Honda Accord ran off the road to the left striking the jersey wall," Davenport wrote.

Murphy was the only person in car, according to troopers.
