Crash Kills Two Women in Virginia

A crash in Virginia killed two women Wednesday, Virginia State Police said.

A Triangle woman driving a Nissan Xterra north on Route 1 crossed the center line and struck a southbound Jeep Cherokee operated by a Stafford woman, police said. The Nissan was then hit from behind by a Ford truck, operated by a Michigan man who was not injured in the crash.

Troopers identified the Nissan driver as 55-year-old Emma Okai. She was flown to a hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

The driver of the Jeep has been identified as 28-year-old Nicole Boise. She was pronounced dead shortly after being transported from the crash scene.

The crash is under investigation.
