CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- A Chesterfield father was hurt and his daughter was killed in a crash on Interstate 95, according to Virginia State Police and people familiar with the victims.

Scott Garka, who serves as president of Richmond-based arts and culture non-profit CultureWorks, was driving with his daughter Rachel when they were involved in a four-vehicle crash at mile marker 87 near Sliding Hill Road in Hanover.

"The chain reaction crash occurred in the southbound lanes," a Virginia State Police spokesperson said. "A southbound two-door Volkswagen was rear-ended, which pushed it into the vehicle in front of it... the chain reaction to involve a total of four vehicles.

"The driver of the Volkswagen [Garka] was transported to VCU Medical Center for treatment of serious but non-life threatening injuries. His 17-year-old passenger, Rachel Garka of Midlothian, Va., died at the scene. Both were wearing seat belts."

Rachel Garka was a student at Cosby High School in Midlothian, according to Crime Insider sources.

Virginia State Police Richmond Division Crash Reconstruction Team is investigating the crash. Charges are pending, police said.
