SUFFOLK -- Friends and family gathered Tuesday night at Kellam High School in Va. Beach to remember 16-year-old, James Normille, who died in a Tuesday morning accident in Suffolk.

Normille was a student at the school.

He was one of six occupants of the car that overturned on Route 58 around 6:15 a.m.

There were four children and two adults in the grey Toyota Sequoia. Normille died at the scene.

The mother, Elizabeth Normile, and three-year-old daughter, Lola, were ejected from the vehicle. The police report shows the toddler was in the front seat and that none of the passengers were using seat belts. Officials say they have been stabilized and are in fair condition.

17-year-old Gaela and 10-year-old Jack were pinned inside.

The father, James Patrick Normile IV, was driving the SUV when he lost control on Route 58/Holland Road at Manning Bridge Road around 6:15 a.m. The SUV ran off the road, hit a culvert and rolled onto its side. Mr. Normile was able to get out of the vehicle.

Two people were taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital; three others were being treated at Sentara Obici.

Investigators say Normile fell asleep at the wheel. The family was reportedly headed back home to Virginia Beach from a Spring Break trip.

The Normile family lost another child last year. Lola's twin brother, Charlie, drowned in their swimming pool.
