Emergency crews shutdown I-95

Police charged Michelle Witzel with reckless driving after a serious accident in Prince George County,Virginia, just south of Petersburg. The accident injured four people, and Interstate 95 northbound was temporarily shut down to allow a medical helicopter to land. No other vehicles were involved.

Witzel and her 11-year-old-son were flown to VCU Medical Center with serious injuries. Police shut down I-95 in Prince George for an hour to allow the helicopter to land and transport the patients to the hospital.

According to eye-witness reports, the single-vehicle crash occurred when Witzel, who was driving a 2002 Toyota Sequoia, tried to switch lanes but overcorrected to avoid hitting a vehicle in her blind spot. The SUV ran off the right side of the road and flipped over several times.

Witzel and her son both suffered serious injuries and were flown by helicopter to VCU Medical Center. Their injuries are said to be non-life threatening. Witzel’s two daughters, who were also passengers in the vehicle, were both taken by ambulance to Southside Regional Medical Center in Petersburg, Virginia. They suffered only minor injuries.

Police say all the passengers in the vehicle were wearing seat belts. Due to the accident, Witzel is now charged with reckless driving in Prince George County, Virginia.
