An Ann Arbor mother and her daughter were killed today in a two-vehicle crash in Virginia where they were traveling for field hockey tryouts, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported.
Theresa Supica, 45, and Samantha Supica, 12, both of Ann Arbor, died at the scene of the 11:14 a.m. crash near mile marker 84 on southbound Interstate 95, said Sgt. Thomas Molnar, a state police spokesman. Theresa Supica was in the front passenger seat and Samantha in a rear passenger seat at the time of the crash, he said.
The teenage driver and her teenage sister, also daughters of Theresa Supica but not further identified, suffered serious injuries and were taken to VCU Medical Center.
Molnar said the Supica family was traveling to Virginia Beach for field hockey tryouts.
The driver of the second vehicle, Se H. Yoo, 20, of Centreville, suffered minor injuries and was also taken to the hospital. Â¶
Police said the wreck occurred when Yoo, driving a Toyota Corolla, was traveling in the right lane of southbound I-95 and changed lanes to avoid another vehicle and lost control. Yoo’s car struck the Ford Explorer, occupied by the Supica family, causing the Explorer to veer out of control and overturn several times, landing on its roof.
