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.
