SUFFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Two men are dead after a multi-car accident that happened near the Godwin Bridge on Sunday afternoon. 

The accident was reported to Emergency Dispatch at around 3:05 p.m. 

Diana Klink, the spokesperson for the city of Suffolk, told 13News Now that in addition to the two fatalities, three other people were injured in the accident.

One of the victims has been identified as Paul E. Shinabery, 57, of Smithfield, and the other Donald A Mohorn, 56, of Hampton. Both victims were in a Toyota Camry.

Family and friends of Donnie Mohorn say he was an easygoing, hardworking carpenter who recently moved in with his 87-year-old mother to help take care of her. He was the youngest of three brothers. His eldest brother was also killed in a car crash about 30 years ago. 

Two of the injured people are listed in serious condition, while the third is considered to be in critical condition. 

Klink says the cause of the accident remains under investigation. The bridge re-opened at around 9 p.m. after crews spent nearly six hours on scene.
