An accident on Interstate 264 in Norfolk has been attributed to excessive speed. A Norfolk police officer was among the injured and all lanes of westbound I-264 were closed for several hours.
According to the Virginia State Police a silver Lexus hit the back of a black SUV, forcing it into a Norfolk police cruiser. All of the vehicles were moving during the time of the accident. The Lexus, seemingly responsible for the accident, pushed the SUV across all three lanes of traffic before they came to a rest on the dividing wall, over 1,000 feet from the initial impact.
While the police officer was not treated for injuries one passenger from each of the other vehicles were taken to local hospitals. At the time of this report there was no word has to how severe their injuries were.
A witness to the accident told reporters that when she drove by she noticed that the Lexus was on fire. Both vehicles sustained major damage during the accident and are more than likely beyond repair.The personal injury attorneys at Tavss Fletcher hope that all injured parties are on their way to making a full recovery.
