Two Injured in Wreck on Buckner Boulevard in Virginia Beach

The Thanksgiving weekend saw a number of serious accidents in Hampton Roads including a multi-vehicle accident on Buckner Boulevard at Canadian Arch, on Sunday evening.

Two drivers were trapped in the crash. Emergency workers attended the scene at 9:39 p.m.

The extent of their injuries was not made clear. Unlike another multi-vehicle accident over the weekend in Newport News, no fatalities were reported.

The scene of the accident at Buckner Boulevard

WAVY.com reported there were no passengers in either vehicle. The crash is being investigated by the Virginia Beach Fire Department’s Fatal Crash Team. Buckner Boulevard is a fast-moving road near S. Rosemont. The cause of Sunday’s crash is not clear.

Another crash was reported in Virginia Beach a day later on Monday.

Police said a  22-year-old man lost his life in a single-car crash off of Interstate 264 in Virginia Beach. Virginia State Police said the driver of a 2013 Ford Mustang was traveling west on I-264 at a high rate of speed.

According to crash reports, the driver lost control at the Newtown Road exit, ran off the highway and ended up in  the woods shortly before midnight on Monday, Nov. 28.

Nobody else was involved in the wreck. Police said it’s unknown if alcohol was a factor in this crash.

As Virginia Beach personal injury lawyers, we are always concerned to read about injuries and a loss of life in the largest city in the Commonwealth.

Virginia Beach has some dangerous highways like Shore Drive and Independence Boulevard. It is served by I-264 which sees high levels of congestion in and out of Norfolk during the mornings and evenings and many wrecks. You can read about accident rates in Virginia Beach on our website.

While Virginia Beach has many dangerous routes, we are happy to read about how the city is preparing to eliminate the feeder lanes on Laskin Road.

A report in the Virginian-Pilot revealed the city council is to provide $14.1 million and is requesting $15 million in state money for the initial phase of road improvements.

These feeder lanes have been a recipe for confusion and accidents for decades in the busy Hilltop area and their elimination can’t come soon enough for drivers.
