Man dies, another charged with involuntary manslaughter after 4-vehicle crash on I-64 in Hampton

A man died and another was charged with involuntary manslaughter following a four-vehicle crash on I-64 in Hampton, west of King Street, on Friday morning.

At about 10 a.m., Mauro Francisco Zamora, 21, pulled into a lane closed by Virginia Department of Transportation in response to previous car crashes that occurred earlier in the morning. When Zamora attempted to merge back into traffic, he crashed into a 2020 Honda Civic and started a chain of collisions.

Upon being struck, the driver of the Honda crashed into the back of a 2013 Acura ILX. Lorenzo Arline II, 29, was driving the Acura and lost control after getting rear-ended. His car spun across several lanes until finally stopping when it collided with a parked VDOT truck assisting with the lane closure.

The VDOT driver was out of the truck when the Acura hit. He was unharmed. The driver of the Honda was also uninjured, but Arline II was taken to the Riverside Regional Medical Center where he later died from his injuries.

Zamora, from Norfolk, was arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter, reckless driving, failing to move over, operating a vehicle without a license and obstruction of justice. The passenger in Zamora’s car, Francisco Mauro Zamora Barahona, 48, was charged with obstruction of justice. Both were taken to Hampton City Jail without bond.
