Fatal Accident is Reported on Hampton Highway in York County

I was saddened to read that Virginia State Police were called out to a fatal crash in York County this afternoon

Troopers were called to the accident on Hampton Highway at Long Green Road just before 5 p.m.

State police reported that the right northbound lane of Hampton Highway was blocked as state police investigated.

Few further details were available about this fatal wreck such as how many vehicles were involved or the circumstances of the crash.

Hampton Highway at Long Green Road

However, it’s the latest in a spate of deadly accidents in Hampton Roads this month. Earlier this week, a pedestrian lost his life in Hampton on W. Mercury Boulevard.

It’s not clear is a driver will be charged after a pedestrian was hit on the I-64 ramp at Mercury Blvd. on Tuesday night.

Also within the last week, a woman was killed in Accomack County on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

This crash occurred at 10.40 p.m. last Friday on Atlantic Road, less than a mile to the south of Bowden Lane. A report from Virginia State Police stated a Chevrolet Malibu was heading south on Atlantic Road when the vehicle ran off the road on a curve. It then spun around and hit a tree.

Police said an 18-year-old backseat passenger was killed in this crash.  Three other occupants of the car were injured. One of them, a 17-year-old sustained serious injuries.

Earlier this month, a serious accident on I-264 in Virginia Beach Police two dead and six injured.

The massive crash near the Birdneck Road intersection of the interstate closed the highway down in both directions for about six hours. One of the victims was a passenger in a Chrysler Pacifica that crossed a central reservation and headed in the wrong direction. The other was a man driving an incoming car.

We often see a surge in serious accidents over the holidays. There may be more traffic on the road or more drivers may be consuming alcohol. There has been no confirmation that alcohol was related to any of the fatal accidents in and around Hampton Roads in the last two weeks.

If you have lost a loved one in an auto accident, you may have grounds to make a wrongful death claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Call Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers at (757) 455-0077.
