Driver in York County is Airlifted After Two Car Wreck

By Griff O'Hanlon, York County Car Accident Attorney

I was alarmed to see the dramatic pictures from York County of an accident that resulted in one driver being airlifted to the hospital.

WAVY.com reported on a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Cook Road and Falcon Road on Thursday afternoon.

York County Fire and Life Safety spokesman Assistant Chief Jeffery Pyne said the two vehicles were on top of each other at the crash scene, just after 4 p.m. The crash appeared to involve an SUV and a sedan.

The driver of the car that appeared to be under the SUV, was trapped inside in his vehicle and additional EMT units were called in to help get him out at the scene. He was later airlifted by Nightingale to Norfolk Sentara General with unknown injuries. Pyne said the other driver was not injured.

The crash closed Cook Road from Route 17 to Falcon Road just under an hour.

Also on Thursday, a driver was injured in a three-vehicle accident in Virginia Beach. The wreck occurred around 8 a.m. in the 3300 block of E. Princess Anne Road, according to investigators.

TV news channels reported that the driver of a Dodge Stratus struck the back of a Coca-Cola tractor-trailer, stated police, causing the car to spin into oncoming traffic. The Dodge was then struck by a Ford Expedition and left the roadway, destroying an HRT bus shelter. Fortunately, nobody was in the shelter at the time of the crash. 

The 36-year-old driver of the Dodge was treated for injures that didn’t appear to be life-threatening. The driver was later charged with improper lane change.

These accidents illustrate how things can go badly wrong in a matter of seconds. Often a simple mistake or a lapse of attention can cause a traffic wreck.

At Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers, we help those who have been hurt in a wreck due to no fault of their own. If you are injured in a car accident in Hampton Roads, or further afield, you should first get the proper medical attention. Try to collect evidence at the accident scene that could be useful for a future claim. If you are not in a fit state to talk to witnesses, take pictures of the wreck scene on your smart phone. Although a police officer or state trooper will carry out an investigation, your evidence may be important.
