The Norfolk car accident took place on the night of August 11, 2010, after a group of people was driving after partying and drinking in a Virginia hotel room. Watson was at the wheel when he lost control of the car, which slammed into several trees and a street sign before coming to rest against the side of a house. Three people in the car were killed in the crash while three others, including Watson, suffered serious injuries.
While some of the witnesses claim that Watson insisted on driving, reached speeds of 110 miles per hour, and did not slow down despite screams, the defense in the car accident case is arguing that Watson was forced to drive by the owner of the car, and that one of the passengers jerked the wheel and caused the accident.
The Virginia accident attorneys at Chandler Law Group send their sincerest condolences to the families involved in the accident and hope that trial reaches a just end.
