Chesapeake, VA Pileup Near Walmart Sends Six to Hospitals
Neither the cause of the chain-reaction accident nor the severity of the people's injuries have been reported, but the wreckage shown in the WAVY-TV 10 video above indicates that at least some of the accident victims face intensive medical treatments, long recoveries and large health care bills. The footage of the crash after also shows that a few of the vehicles rear-ended cars and trucks that had already wrecked.
One lesson to take from the Chesapeake pileup is that all drivers must be attuned to and prepared to react to changes in road conditions and traffic flow at all times. Probably no one would expect to encounter a major accident just outside a Walmart parking lot and access road, but that is exactly what occurred this time. When drivers could not stop in time, they found themselves also involved in, and injured by, the accident.
