Driver is Killed in Accident on Carolina Road in Suffolk
I was saddened to read about a serious accident in Suffolk that left a man dead and two people with serious injuries.
A City of Suffolk press release stated Davey Kennedy Bellamy, 48, of Suffolk, died on the scene on Carolina Road on Wednesday.
The crash occurred at 4:29 p.m. in the 4500 block and involved a Chevrolet work van and Chevrolet four-door sedan, which was driven by Mr. Bellamy. The van overturned. My thoughts are with the family of Mr. Bellamy.
The press release stated an adult female was airlifted by Nightingale to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, and an adult male was taken to the same hospital by ground ambulance. Both had serious injuries, according to the release.
Carolina Road was closed for hours. Traffic was detoured down nearby streets, the press release stated.
The Suffolk News Herald reported on a second crash that occurred the next day in the city. The wreck on Route 58 left a man with life-threatening injuries.
The accident happened at 6:12 a.m. about a half-mile west of the weigh scales, according to a city press release.
The accident involved a Mitsubishi two-door passenger vehicle. Suffolk Fire & Rescue personnel had to extricate a man who was driving the car. He is believed to have serious, life-threatening injuries. Because of weather conditions, Nightingale was not available, so the man was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital by ground ambulance.
Two lanes of traffic were closed for part of the morning and reopened about 8 a.m. The cause of the accident is being investigated.
Suffolk is a large city with many treacherous rural roads. The city has a number of roads that see very serious crashes such as Route 460 (Pruden Boulevard) which is the scene of numerous fatal and serious accidents.
Last year a 38-year-old woman from Windsor, Virginia, was killed on Pruden Boulevard. The multi-vehicle accident occurred on the 4800 block of Route 460/Pruden Boulevard at Old Myrtle Road.
It’s important that drivers watch their speed and look out for other drivers on hazardous routes like Route 460 and Route 58.
