A mother and daughter from Colerain, N.C., were killed in a crash Tuesday morning on Whaleyville Boulevard.

Teresa Brooks Brown, 60, and her mother, Bernice Ping Brooks, 84, were traveling in a PT Cruiser driven by Brown in the 8700 block about 8:05 a.m. when it collided with a minivan. Both women were pronounced dead at the scene.

The male driver of the minivan was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with serious injuries, according to a city press release. His identity was not released Tuesday, but he was determined to be the at-fault driver, and charges are pending following an investigation by the Suffolk Police Department and review by the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.
