LAWRENCEVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Virginia State Police have identified two more victims of a head-on collision that killed five people on Interstate 85 in Brunswick County.

They're 32-year-old Davinda Jailall and 51-year-old Krishna Maniram, both of New York. Sgt. Michelle Anaya says two other victims who were riding in the Toyota Corolla driven by Jailall still have not been positively identified.

The accident occurred Tuesday when a pickup truck going the wrong way on I-85 collided with the Toyota. The driver of the pickup, 70-year-old Walter Edward Skinner of Richmond, also was killed.

Authorities received a 911 call shortly before the crash about a wrong way driver, but the collision happened before troopers could arrive.
