I-264 Crash Stops Traffic and Sends Man to the Hospital | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

According to an article in the Virginian Pilot, a recent multiple vehicle crash on Interstate 264 near the Virginia Beach-Norfolk line stopped traffic for about 90 minutes.  At around 6:30 p.m., Virginia State Police investigated an accident.  The accident involved a Ford SUV near the exit of Woodstock and Newtown Road.  The driver of the SUV attempted to cross four lanes of eastbound traffic, struck a pickup truck and lost control.  His vehicle then hit another vehicle in the HOV lane and went airborne over the concrete median barrier.  The SUV landed on the westbound side of I-264.


The SUV driver, a 20-year old Suffolk man, was flown to Norfolk General Hospital with multiple injuries.  Both sides of I-264 were closed until 8:00 p.m.
