The Richmond Police Department’s Special Operations Division-Traffic Crash Team has identified the victims of last week’s six-vehicle collision as Karen Murphy, a female in her 50s, and Kevin Hancock, a male in his 50s.

At approximately 7:54 p.m. on Thursday, November 26, 2020, the operator of a pick-up truck, traveling westbound on Brookland Park Boulevard, disregarded a red light and entered the intersection of Chamberlayne Avenue, striking two vehicles, including an SUV, that were traveling southbound on Chamberlayne Avenue.

All three vehicles then collided with three vehicles that were stopped in the eastbound lanes of Brookland Park Boulevard.

Murphy and Hancock were in the SUV. Murphy was pronounced dead at the scene. Hancock was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The driver of the pick-up truck, an adult male and sole occupant, was transported to a local hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening. Charges are pending.

Occupants of the other vehicles, all adults, suffered minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call RPD Crash Team Investigator D. Olson at 804-646-1664 or contact Crime Stoppers at 780-1000. All Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.
