New York man dies in Virginia Accident

Virginia (July 30,2011)  According to Virginia State Police, a 68 year old man from New York was killed early Saturday morning in a fatal car accident.  Enrico Iannuzzi  and his 95-year-old mother were traveling south on I-95 just south of the I-295 interchange in Prince George County, when he ran off the road and struck the guardrail.

Iannuzzi’s 2001 Jeep Cherokee rolled over several times ejecting both passengers, who were not wearing seat belts, out of the vehicle.  Iannuzzi died at the scene and his mother, Marghette Iannuzzi,  was flown to VCU Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The southbound lanes of I-95 were completely shut down for a period of time in the morning while State Police investigated the scene.

Police say fatigue may be the reason for this fatal accident.
