Virginia Beach, VA (August 11, 2020) – An automobile accident reported on Monday left two people hospitalized in the Norfolk area. At around 7:40 a.m., on August 10, emergency crews in the Norfolk area were called to the scene of a crash on Northampton Boulevard.
Reports show that a semi-truck crashed into two other vehicles on Northampton Road near the Norfolk Premium Outlets. The semi-truck continued forward, pinning one of the vehicles between its front end and a building along the side of the road. Two people were trapped inside their vehicle for an extended time. Firefighters worked aggressively to remove the two trapped victims but had difficulties accessing them due to the position the vehicles came to rest in and the extent of damages. Crews were able to successfully remove the victims from their vehicles. Both victims were rushed to area hospitals via Nightingale Regional Air Ambulance. At this time, the crash remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the two victims injured in this accident.
Truck Accidents in Virginia
Every day, more than 180 people are injured in vehicle accidents in the Commonwealth of Virginia. These accidents often leave victims severely injured and force them into area hospitals. Accidents involving semi-trucks, in particular, are more likely to result in life-altering injuries for victims. In many cases, victims are left with brain injuries, spinal cord damages, and broken bones. Victims often require extensive and expensive medical treatment to help them recover from their injuries. The unfortunate truth is that there is no guarantee that victims will fully recover from their injuries. As a result, thousands of people are left permanently disabled due to the extent of their injuries. When victims are harmed in accidents, due to the negligence of others, it is crucial that they reach out to a truck accident attorney in Virginia as soon as possible.
