Whenever we heard that there is a multi-vehicle crash, we fear that worst. We tend to think that more people are killed in these types of accidents. However, that isn’t always the case. Sometimes, single-car accidents are much worse than multi-vehicle crashes. Thankfully, this was the case in Virginia Beach this weekend.
On Friday, February 7, at about 6 pm, police in Virginia Beach responded to a serious crash. The accident happened on the 400 block of Witchduck Road. When the cops arrived, they found 2 of the cars overturned. Rescue crews arrived and the first responders tended to at least 6 people who were injured. One of the injured had to be airlifted to the local hospital by Nightingale. They are expected to survive their injuries. Thankfully, nobody else was seriously hurt in the crash.
The police had to shut down N. Witchduck Road from Virginia Beach Boulevard to Baker Road. The road was closed for about 4 hours and didn’t reopen until 10 pm.
The investigation is still ongoing. Even though nobody passed away, the Fatal Crash team has gotten involved. The authorities have not yet released the name of any of the victims. Nor have they released the cause of the crash.
In cases like this, it can be hard to determine fault. The good thing is that, when there are so many cars involved, there are usually witnesses. Hopefully, someone saw something that will help the police determine the cause of the crash.
