NORFOLK, Va. - A man has died at the hospital after a three-vehicle crash on I-64 at Tidewater Drive Wednesday afternoon.

The crash happened at 2:36 p.m.

Virginia State Police say the driver of a 2006 Chevrolet Corvette, identified as 55-year-old George S. Schaab of Norfolk, was driving in the eastbound lanes of I-64 at a high rate of speed when the driver of a 2016 Dodge Journey changed lanes and hit Schaab's vehicle.

Both drivers lost control of their vehicles and ran off the road. Schaab hit the jersey wall, causing the Corvette to be pushed back into the eastbound lanes, where it hit a 2017 Nissan Altima that was also in the eastbound lanes.

Schaab was taken to DePaul Medical Center, where he later died from his injuries. His family has been notified of his death.

The driver of the Nissan Altima was also taken to the same hospital for treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

State Police say the driver of the Dodge Journey, identified as 31-year-old Khiry Ives of Haddon Heights, New Jersey, was charged with unsafe lane change.

This crash is pending review by the Commonwealth's Attorney.
