HENRICO COUNTY, Va. - A memorial took Saturday evening for a woman killed in a crash earlier this week. Henrico Police say 23-year-old Melissa Haislip died Wednesday night in a three-car accident near Rockett's Landing.

Friends of Haislip said she was a graduate of Varina High School and Longwood University.

Haislip's friends and family hosted the candlelit vigil at 8:30 p.m. at the scene of the accident, along Osborne Turnpike.

No charges have been filed yet, as police continue their investigation.

    Did find one follow up story with some basic facts. Was the Camaro driver speeding? Was the Dodge swerving to miss a bicyclist? What about the others injured? Any children involved?

  • Linda

    What difference does it make if she is white, black, pink or purple????? Or if she had tattoos or what social class she belonged to?
