May 11, 2016

Investigators with the Richmond Police Department’s Traffic Unit say charges are pending in a two-vehicle crash that claimed the life of a young child.

Queen Maultsby, 2, of the 4000 block of Midlothian Turnpike, died late last night from injuries she received in the crash. Her mother, Britney Maultsby, 22, of the 4000 block of Midlothian Turnpike, was driving the vehicle in which her daughter was riding.

The RPD Crash Team has determined that the crash, which occurred at 4:48 p.m., Tuesday, May 10, at the intersection of 18th and Coalter Streets, was triggered when Maultsby’s vehicle entered the intersection and collided with another vehicle. Maultsby’s vehicle was travelling west on Coalter Street at the time. The other vehicle was travelling north on 18th Street.

Four people in Maultsby’s vehicle and one person in the other vehicle were taken to the hospital to be evaluated. Only the driver of the other vehicle remains hospitalized for evaluation.

The investigation is still on-going and charges are pending further consultation with the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.
