Virginia Beach, Va. – One person was killed during an accident involving a car and a motorcycle on I-64 westbound at the Twin Bridges, State Police say.

The victim has been identified as 30-year-old Jonathan Hicks of Chesapeake and the driver of the vehicle was 37-year-old Ronnie Pruden of Virginia Beach.
