Single Vehicle Wreck Kills Two on Route 58 in Chesapeake, VA

The Memorial Day weekend is not yet over but it has already seen the loss of life on the highways of Hampton Roads.

Two people were killed in a single-vehicle accident on Route 58 west east of Snowden in Chesapeake on Sunday afternoon.

On Saturday morning, three people were injured in a two-vehicle crash involving a City of Virginia Beach public utilities  truck.

Virginia State Police reported the single vehicle accident occurred at 3:20 p.m. on Sunday. A 1999 Ford Contour traveling westbound ran off the highway and struck a tree, killing both the 21-year-old driver from Suffolk and the 18-year-old passenger of Chesapeake.

All lanes on US-58/13/460 were closed for a few hours as well as the I-664 south exit 13A.

Both the driver and the passenger were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash and alcohol was not a factor.

Three Injured in Crash Involving VA Beach Utilities Truck

A day earlier in Virginia Beach, first responders were called out to a crash between a Toyota Tacoma and City of Virginia Beach Public Utilities Chevrolet 3500 truck in the 1500 block of Virginia Beach Boulevard.

Media reports stated that the Toyota Tacoma crossed a double yellow line and struck the Chevrolet 3500.

Police said the driver of the Toyota was transported to a local hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries. He was later reported to be in stable condition, according to police.

The driver and passenger of the Chevrolet 3500 were also taken to a local hospital for the treatment non-life threatening injuries. Investigators are looking into the cause of this wreck and say charges are pending against the driver of the Toyota Tacoma.

The crash led to the closure of Virginia Beach Boulevard between West Lane and First Colonial Road.

Recently, we noted how fatal accidents normally spike over the July 4 holiday. Last year, four people died on the roads of Virginia but the figure for 2014 was 11.

If you plan to consume alcohol over the July 4 holiday, make sure you have appointed a designated driver or use a service such as a taxi or Uber. If you have been hurt by the careless or reckless actions of a driver, you have rights to sue the driver’s insurance policy. If you have lost a loved one who was a passenger, you have rights to sue the insurance policy of the driver who was responsible for the wreck.
