Posted on Sep 22, 2008
A woman died Saturday night after she flipped her custom three-wheeled motorcycle in the Pungo section of the city. Police said they responded to the crash at 7:55 p.m. in the 2100 block of Princess Anne Road. They arrived to find the driver suffering from life-threatening injuries, police said. She was flown to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital by Nightingale where she later died, according to police.

Police identified the woman as 44-year-old E. Carla Mitchell of the 6300 block of Blackwater Road. The preliminary investigation into the crash determined that Mitchell was going south on Princess Anne Road when she veered off the right-hand side of the road and struck a pot hole, police said. This caused her trike to flip over and eject her. Police described the motorcycle as a modified 2005 Harley-Davidson. Mitchell was wearing a helmet when she crashed, police said. The investigation continues.
