Chesapeake, VA (October 30, 2021) – Officers say that one person was transported to the hospital after a two-vehicle crash occurred in Chesapeake on Saturday evening, October 30.
Pughsville Road in Chesapeake was closed for nearly two hours on Saturday evening as police worked to investigate the hit-and-run accident.
Initial reports indicate that a pick-up truck, towing a trailer, was hit by another pick-up truck around 6:30 p.m. on Pughsville Road, located between Taylor Road and I-664. When the pick-up truck and trailer collided, both caught fire.
The suspected at-fault driver fled the scene before police arrived. One person in the other vehicle was transported to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
The investigation is ongoing, and further details have not been provided.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Injury Vehicle Accidents in Virginia
An estimated 1,000 people are killed in car accidents throughout the Commonwealth every single year and an additional 65,000 victims will be seriously injured.
Long after the actual accident is over, many victims still suffer from long-term physical issues and psychological trauma. This is especially true if they endured a critical injury such as a traumatic brain injury, bone fractures, and spinal damage.
Even if you make every effort to drive defensively to protect yourself and other drivers, you cannot ensure that others will be as considerate. Sadly, tens of thousands of people are left with debilitating injuries after these accidents. Crashes that are caused by a driver’s negligence can leave victims in harrowing circumstances.
Oftentimes, these victims require medical treatment and ongoing therapy lasting for months or years. As a result, victims may pay tens of thousands of dollars out of their own pockets.
