Chesapeake Car Accident Injury Lawyer Report : Woman is Killed, Two Students Injured in Head-On Crash on Shillelagh Road, Chesapeake
A head-on accident in Chesapeake, VA has left a 59-year-old woman dead and injured two Grassfield High School students.
The fatal crash occurred along Shillelagh Road in Chesapeake on the morning of November 25, 2012, WAVY.com reported.
Kelly O’Sullivan with the Chesapeake Police Department said the wreck occurred in the 2300 block of Shillelagh Road just before 8:30 a.m.
WAVY reported on how two Grassfield High School students were involved in the crash and were taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.
Police say an 18-year-old driver and a 15-year-old passenger were in an Isuzu Rodeo traveling southbound on Shillelagh Road. The driver who was killed was in a minivan traveling northbound. Police said it was a head-on crash.
One student had to be extracted from the vehicle. As experienced Chesapeake car accident injury lawyers our thoughts are with the family of the woman who died. We are relieved to read the injuries to the students are described as non-life threatening.
It’s not clear who was to blame for this wreck. Depending on the circumstances a wrongful death lawsuit, could be brought by the family of the deceased woman, or the students could make a claim for their injuries.
Police reported a second accident on Shillelagh Road around the same time. It was a rear-end crash and a driver was transported to the hospital suffering from arm pain.
