NEWPORT NEWS -- State Police investigated a deadly hit and run crash at the Monitor Merrimac Bridge Tunnel just after midnight on Sunday.

According to Sergeant Michelle Anaya, a 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling north on Interstate 664 when the driver swerved into the right lane to pass other vehicles.

While swerving the Tahoe hit a 2011 Kawasaki motorcycle, forcing the driver from the motorcycle.

The driver of the SUV left the scene, but troopers were able to identify Jennifer Walker and locate her.

24-year-old Taiesha Wilson of Newport News was pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers say Wilson was wearing an approved helmet.

A preliminary investigation determined that alcohol was not a factor in the crash.

Walker has been charged with felony hit and run.
