VDOT camera footage crash on I-66 in Fauquier County.

Two people died and six others were injured when a Winnebago collided with a tractor trailer Thursday evening on Interstate 66 in Fauquier County.

State police said the recreation vehicle was traveling east on I-66 near Markham at 8:26 p.m. when it collided with an eastbound tractor-trailer. The impact caused the RV to run off the interstate, through the guardrail, down an embankment, and into several trees, state police Sgt. Brent Coffey said in a news release.

The driver of the RV, 25-year-old Ifreke E. Inyang, of Houston, Texas, suffered minor injuries and was taken to Warren Memorial Hospital for treatment. He was wearing a seatbelt.

Two passengers in the RV - Lenisha T. Simon, 39, and Brenda M. Oyervides, 24, both of Houston, Texas, died at the scene, Coffey said.

Another RV passenger, a 23-year-old woman from Baton Rouge, La., suffered life-threatening injuries and was flown to INOVA Fairfax Hospital.

Four other passengers in the RV suffered minor injuries in the crash and were all transported to Warren Memorial Hospital. None of the passengers in the RV were wearing seatbelts, Coffey said.

The driver of the tractor-trailer suffered minor injuries and was taken to Heathcote Health Center. He was wearing a seatbelt.

Inyang was charged with reckless driving and for driving without a valid operator's license, Coffey said.

The crash remains under investigation.
