Not a single person inside the SUV was wearing a seat belt when it flipped, killing a Virginia Beach teen on Tuesday reports say.
According to a crash report released today, the dad, Jay Normile, fell asleep behind the wheel yesterday morning.
The family's SUV drifted off Suffolk’s Route 58 yesterday morning, hit a culvert, went airborne and landed on its side.
Sixteen-year-old James Normile died in the crash.
His mom and toddler sister were ejected from the passenger side.
Two other children were pinned inside the SUV.
The loss of a classmate has hit students hard at Kellam High School.
Last night, they gathered for a candlelight vigil to remember James and to grieve together.
This is the second tragedy this family has faced in less than a year.
Just last May, the Normile family lost their two-year-old son, Charlie.
He drowned in their backyard pool.
Tonight, the hospital is not releasing any information on how the rest of the family is recovering after the crash.
