Pedestrians Died in Norfolk and Chesapeake Over the Weekend

Two more pedestrians died in Norfolk and Chesapeake over the weekend during another grim weekend on the highways of Hampton Roads.

Police in Chesapeake are investigating a fatal auto-pedestrian accident that occurred at about 10.40 p.m. on Saturday.

Chesapeake police arrived at the accident scene in the Cedar Road and Cedar Lakes area to find a deceased pedestrian. No other details were available and it’s not known if a motorist remained at the accident

In Norfolk, a woman was reported dead in a hit-and-run accident over the weekend.

Emergency crews were called out to the 1400 block of E. Ocean View Avenue at 10:20 p.m. on Friday for an auto pedestrian accident.

Police found an adult woman lying in the street at E. Ocean View Avenue. She was pronounced her dead at the wreck scene.

Police said in a statement a driver struck her and fled the area. They are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the hit-and-run.

Our thoughts are with the families of those who died in these two accidents. There are few scenarios more despicable than when drivers hit a pedestrian and flee from the scene. These drivers usually have something to hide. They may have been driving drunk or recklessly or with an expired license.

Pedestrians Died in Norfolk and Chesapeake in Latest Auto-Pedestrian Wrecks

Sadly, a large number of pedestrians have lost their lives in Hampton Roads this year. The death toll usually rises in the summer.

Earlier this month, a pedestrian died in an accident on Monticello Avenue in Norfolk.

The walker was hit by a car at the intersection of E. 26th St. and Monticello Ave., just before 9:45 p.m. on a Saturday night

Emergency crews at the scene found the 56-year-old lying near the roadway. Medics transported the man later identified as Derek A. Vennie, to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital where he died later from his injuries.

Pedestrians died in Norfolk and Chesapeake in a spate of wrecks in these pedestrian-unfriendly cities in recent years. Both Norfolk and Chesapeake have fast-moving urban highways like Tidewater Drive, Military Highway, and Battle Boulevard which are challenging for pedestrians to cross.

As well as people crossing the road late at night, drivers should watch out for children playing in the streets over the summer months.

If you have been injured in an accident due to the fault of another driver or lost a loved one, please call our Norfolk and Chesapeake pedestrian accident lawyers at (757) 455-0077.
