Driver Dies A Week After Wrong Way Crash on Nansemond Parkway in Suffolk
Crashes in which drivers cross center lines are among the most serious I see as a personal injury lawyer. Typically, these crashes involve a greater degree of force than accidents such as rear-end crashes.
I was saddened to read about how a 58-year-old man died after he was involved in a crash on Nansemond Parkway in Suffolk on December 9.
The crash occurred at the intersection of Nansemond Parkway and Sportsmen Boulevard. Police said William Lee Lawrence crossed the center line of the highway and sideswiped two vehicles before crashing head-on into another vehicle.
Mr. Lawrence and another man were taken from the accident scene to the hospital suffering from serious injuries. He was pronounced dead this week, one week after the crash.
WAVY.com reported he died of injuries sustained in the crash. It remains unknown at this time what caused him to cross the center line in the first place.
If you are hurt by a driver who crosses a center line, you have strong grounds to file a personal injury claim against his or her insurance policy. Wrong way collisions are common in Virginia. Often they are devastating for all involved.
