STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. — Two drivers are facing charges in a four-vehicle wreck on I-95 in Stafford County that left a state trooper and another driver injured Saturday morning.

Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said a Nissan SUV and a Ford F-150 were “driving aggressively towards one another” heading south on I-95 just after 8:15 a.m.

Geller said the SUV and pickup “made contact” while changing lanes at mile marker 134 in Stafford County just after 8:15 a.m.

That caused the Nissan SUV to spin off the right side of the road and slam into the cruiser of a state trooper, who had pulled over another driver for a traffic stop.

The Nissan hit Trooper K.J. Zalasar’s Ford Taurus, which was forced into the Audi he had pulled over.

The driver of the Nissan, 24-year-old Alexandra M. Seaman, and her passenger, 35-year-old Amanda R. Brunner, both of Woodbridge, were transported to Mary Washington Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the pickup, 35-year-old Christopher P. Johnson of Powhatan, was not hurt.

Trooper Zalasar, who was sitting in his cruiser when it was hit, suffered injuries that were not life-threatening. The 30-year-old was treated and released from Mary Washington Hospital.

The driver of the Audi, 21-year-old William J. Reynolds of Fredericksburg was also transported to Mary Washington Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Seaman and Johnson were charged with reckless driving.

Geller said the wreck remains under investigation.
