On the Interstate where cars often reach high speeds, an improper lane change can be dangerous. We were saddened to read about how a woman was killed in car crash on I-264 in Norfolk.
Virginia State Police responded to the crash at 2:49 p.m. on Friday past the Military Highway exit, close to the I-64 interchange.
State police say a 2007 Dodge Caliber was traveling east on I-264 when a white BMW came up in a lane behind. The police press release said both the Dodge and the BMW started changing to the right lane simultaneously. The Dodge driver swerved to avoid the BMW and lost control of the car.
The Dodge spun around and veered off the right side of I-264, where it struck the jersey wall.
