The driver of the Malibu was killed on impact, and the driver and passenger of the Pacifica suffered non-life threatening injuries. Media reports stated that the woman who died was Lois Norton, of Newport News.
Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:
An unfortunate accident such as this one reminds us all of the importance of paying close attention at all busy intersections. Just a moment’s inattention can have fatal consequences. The driver and passenger of Pacifica should get in contact with a Virginia personal injury attorney to discuss legal options. A civil lawsuit could be filed against the car insurance policy of the deceased driver, and you could be entitled to financial restitution for your injuries.
