Two children were in the car with Evans, but their names were not available Wednesday. They were also taken to Winchester Medical Center, police said.
The driver of a car that struck the rear of Evans' car, Steve Nutt of Inwood, escaped serious injury.
Speed may have played a part in the 7 p.m. crash, which occurred in a crest of a hill near Heritage Free Will Baptist Church, said Lt. Dennis Streets of the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department.
Housden's son, Denzil Housden Jr., said his father worked as a construction worker in Washington, D.C., and retired about 20 years ago.
Housden said his father was not able to do much in his retirement because he suffered from arthritis and a heart condition.
"He just liked to visit and see the grandkids and stuff," Housden said.
Housden said his father was visiting his daughter in Martinsburg, W.Va., and was returning home when the crash occurred.
Housden lived with another son in Summit Point.
