2 crashes, one fatality shut down all lanes at MMBT

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WVEC) --- Two separate crashes, and one fatality blocked all northbound and southbound lanes on I-664 at the Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel Saturday night. 

Around 9:19 p.m. police were called to the south of exit 7 in Newport News. 

A motorcycle was being driven at a high rate of speed and tried to pass a Toyota Echo in the left shoulder.

The motorcycle, driven by Reginald J. Jones II, then made contact with the jersey wall and hit the Toyota in the rear.

Jones was ejected off the motorcycle and died upon impact.

Police say alcohol was not a factor.

VDOT officials tell 13News Now that two separate crashes occurred sometime Saturday evening.
