Police said a Kia Soul was traveling eastbound when the driver, Christy Allen, crossed the center lane, hitting a Honda Accord head on. Allen and her passenger, Roquisha Shonta Broady, were killed.
A passenger in the Honda, Dequincy Lamar Jackson, of South Chesterfield, died on impact. The driver suffered major injuries.
A third car, a Toyota Scion, struck the Honda in the rear. That driver suffered minor injuries.
In a statement, state police said alcohol “was a contributing factor to the cause of the accident.”
