A Charlottesville man was killed on Interstate 64 in western Albemarle County on Tuesday morning.

Woodland Anderson IV, 38, of Charlottesville, was killed when he was thrown from his vehicle just after 8 a.m. after running head-on into a Volvo, according to state police.

Anderson wasn’t wearing his seatbelt, according to police.

He was driving west in the far-right lane near mile marker 104 when he tried to change lanes and hit another westbound vehicle, a Ford Escape, according to police. Anderson’s Camry crossed the median, sideswiped an Acura and ran into the Volvo, according to authorities.

Neither excessive speed nor alcohol appeared to be factors in the crash, said Virginia State Police spokeswoman Deborah Cox.

The driver of the Volvo, Andrew D. Werner, 30, of Staunton, was taken by helicopter to the University of Virginia Medical Center, according to police. He was listed there in fair condition Tuesday evening. He was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident, according to police.

Neither of the other two drivers was injured, state police said.

The road was closed for about three hours, with traffic diverted down Afton Mountain along U.S. 250. No one has been charged in the wreck.

Motorists on Interstate 64 should expect delays due to an accident that has closed both eastbound lanes at mile marker 104 in Albemarle County close to the VDOT Workers' Memorial.

Virginia State Police have confirmed that one person was killed.

Traffic is being diverted to U.S. 250 via exit 99 (Afton Mountain) and back onto I-64 at exit 107 in Crozet.

The Virginia Department of Transportation does not yet have an estimate for when the lanes might be cleared.
