HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – The woman arrested for her role in a fiery Friday night crash in Henrico’s East End was granted bond during a hearing on Tuesday. Evon Nichole Holloway, 28, is charged with her second DUI in five years.
Holloway caused the three-vehicle crash that resulted in a utility pole falling onto one car and catching it on fire, police said. Officers, who would not release details into what led up to the crash, said Holloway’s blood alcohol content was .20. That is more than two times the legal limit (.08) in Virginia.
The crash closed the area around Laburnum Avenue and Nine Mile Road for more than 12 hours as crews cleaned up the mess and restored power to the area.
Some of Holloway’s neighbors said they were shocked to hear about the crash and her arrest. They called the situation out of character for her and called her a “good mom” of two young girls.
Holloway’s next court date is scheduled for July.
