The Virginia State Police are investigating a crash in Henrico County that killed a Williamsburg woman and her passenger, an infant, Sunday.
Police identified the woman as Erica K. Dixon. They did not identify the infant or say whether the two were related.
Dixon was 31 years old.
Police said troopers responded to a two-vehicle crash in the northbound lanes of Interstate 295 at the 25 mile marker at around 5:24 p.m. Sunday.
A 2008 Acura TL was traveling north on I-295 when it ran off the left side of the road, crossed the median into oncoming traffic and struck a 2013 Honda CR-V, police said.
Dixon, who was wearing a seatbelt, was the driver of the Acura.
She died at the scene.
An infant passenger was taken to VCU Medical Center where he later succumbed to his injuries. He was in a child safety seat, police said.
Further information about the crash was not immediately released.
