HENRICO, Va. (AP) - A second occupant of a car that went into the Chickahominy River has died.

Henrico County police said 27-year-old Jessica Gallmeyer of Sandston died Thursday at VCU Medical Center. Her sister, 15-year-old Amanda Irby, died Wednesday.

Police charged the driver, 23-year-old Andrew Taylor Walters of Mechanicsville, on Tuesday with felony eluding, second-offense driving on a suspended license, and providing false information to a law enforcement officer.

Police say an officer tried to stop the vehicle Monday night because it was being driven erratically. The car fled and officers couldn’t catch up to it. About half an hour later, rescue crews responding to a reported vehicle accident found the car overturned in the river.
