Two separate accidents caused havoc on Intestate 64 near route 288 in Henrico County, Virginia (VA). First a Ford Taurus struck a Chrysler while trying to change lanes. Police charged the driver of the Taurus with making an unsafe lane change. Then when the cars behind the Taurus crash stopped a Saturn Coupe did not. The driver slammed into the car in-front of her which forced that car into another car which in turn pushed the last car into the path of a tractor-trailer. Police charged the Saturn driver with following too close and several people suffered injuries.
