Collision in Henrico County leaves 4 critically injured

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Four people were critically injured after two vehicles collided on Parham Road in Henrico County Wednesday night.

When police, fire and rescue personnel were called to the scene at around 7:50 p.m., four people had to be extricated from the two vehicles that were involved. All four were transported to area hospitals for treatment of critical injuries, according to police.

Initial indications, according to police, are that a Nissan SUV traveling westbound on Parham Road crossed the median into oncoming traffic and was struck head-on by a Chevrolet pick-up truck.

The wreck closed both directions of Parham Road between Woodman Road and Ackley Avenue for hours. The area has since returned to its normal traffic flow.
