Virginia Beach One dead, another charged in I-664 crash

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — In a tragic incident on Monday evening, a fatal two-vehicle collision occurred on Interstate 664 in Chesapeake.

The collision involved Leonard driving a 2000 grey Toyota Solara and 18-year-old Elvis Cruz driving a 2008 red Pontiac Vibe, both heading southbound. The contact between their vehicles led to a loss of control, causing both cars to veer off the road and strike the guardrail. The impact was so severe that it overturned the Pontiac, as reported by State Police.

Tragically, Lauryn Ni’Kole Leonard lost her life upon impact, while Elvis Cruz, the driver of the Pontiac, was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
