Man charged in fiery I-95 crash

A Mississippi man whose car was struck by a tractor trailer on Interstate 95 is charged with impeding the flow of traffic.

Around 8:10 p.m. Friday, Trooper D. E. Scott responded to a two-vehicle fiery crash on I-95 near the 113 mile marker in Caroline County.

According to Virginia State Police Spokesperson Sgt. Thomas Molnar, a 1983 Lincoln Continental was traveling southbound in the right lane when it was struck in the rear by a 2009 Freightliner Tractor trailer.

Both vehicles ran off the right side of the roadway and struck the embankment and several trees, Molnar said.

The driver of the Lincoln, 58-year-old David Haik of Vicksburg, Miss., suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries in the crash and was transported by ambulance to Mary Washington Hospital.

He was charged with impeding the flow of traffic. Molnar said he was driving about 40 to 45 mph on the interstate.

A passenger in Haik’s car also suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries and was flown by helicopter to Mary Washington Hospital.

The tractor trailer driver, 45-year-old Charles B. Dinosky of North Carolina was not injured and is not charged.

All involved were wearing a seat belt and the crash remains under investigation, Molnar said.

  • need for speed

    We are often scolded for going to fast which is very dangerous, but going too slow can be dangerous as well….especially on the interstate. We are constantly arguing and begging for a higher limit, but I think the argument may need to go in the opposite direction. There is a need for a speed minimum. I have traveled to many states that have them. I am curious how they will make this one stick since there is no speed minimum is posted along the interstate.

    I am happy nobody was killed.. but I’m also very happy that the driver is geting charged with going too slow….. this happens way too much, if you don’ want to go the speed limit then you need to take route 1 and stay off the HIGHway, maybe ppl will learn now. To me going the speed limit is obeying a traffic sign, going below or over is disobeying! If anything I hope the driver has learned his lesson.

    Finally, someone is charged with impeding the flow of traffic on 95. Sad that it had to happen under these circumstances, though. Now it’s time for the state troopers to start ticketing all the left lane hogs who have a parade of 10+ vehicles behind them as they pass no one.

    My question is why were the injured not taken to Spotsy Regional Medical Center? That would of been much closer than MWH. At least the driver was not critically injured. I have noticed in a few posts from accidents that were closer to the medical center than MWH that the ambulances went the further route? I guess I’m missing something ??

    I found out on Friday that the truck driver was terminated for this.
