A Gainesville woman was killed this past weekend on Interstate 95 this weekend.

Here’s the latest form Virginia State Police:

Virginia State Police Trooper K.W. Peterson responded to a two-vehicle crash in Prince George County, Va. The crash occurred May 22, 2014, at 4:40 p.m. in the southbound lanes of I-95 near the 42 mile marker.

A tractor-trailer was southbound on I-95 in the right lane when it ran off the right side of the interstate and struck a 2007 Hyundai Elantra that was parked on the right shoulder. The driver of the parked Elantra was seated in the passenger side of the vehicle and thrown from the car when it was struck by the tractor-trailer. Meanwhile, the tractor-trailer jackknifed in the tree line off the right side of the interstate.

The driver of the tractor-trailer, Henry W. Vann Jr., 65, of Ahoskie, N.C., was not injured in the crash. He was wearing a seat belt. Vann was charged with reckless driving.

What is this?

The driver of the Elantra, Rachel E. Gradia, 24, of Gainesville, Va., was transported to VCU Medical Center in Richmond, where she died May 24, 2014.

The crash remains under investigation.
