Fiery Suffolk Crash Injured Three Motorists
The rural roads of Suffolk see numerous serious accidents. Over the weekend, a fiery Suffolk crash injured three motorists on Turlington Road.
First responders arrived at the incident scene in the early hours of Saturday morning at 3:34 a.m. in the 600 block of Turlington Road, reported the news channel WTKR.com.
The report stated a vehicle traveling on the road hit a parked car and became engulfed in flames. Investigators found a Chevrolet Impala left the road and crashed into a Ford F150 pickup truck parked under a detached carport.
The Impala traveled about 75 feet before hitting a tree. It then caught fire.
The WTKR report noted the driver and two passengers in the Impala escaped from the Impala as the flames took hold.
All three received emergency medical assessment and treatment by Suffolk Fire & Rescue personnel.
A woman was reported as airlifted to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital suffering from serious injuries. Two men were transported by ambulance to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. Reports suggested one sustained serious injuries, and the other had non-life threatening injuries.
This fiery Suffolk crash remains under investigation. No further information was released.
This was the second serious accident in Suffolk in the span of a week. Last week, a pickup driver reported to be driving the wrong way was killed in a head-on collision on I-664 near the College Drive intersection in Suffolk.
Police said a 2014 Dodge Ram was heading south in the northbound lanes on Tuesday night onto the College Drive ramp. It hit a Nissan Rouge head-on.
It’s unclear why the Dodge Ram was driving the wrong way onto the ramp. Police later identified the Ram driver as 61-year-old Charles Kevin Corroon of Murrells Inlet in South Carolina. Police said they had not determined whether speed and alcohol were factors in the head on wreck.
If a car is driven recklessly and leaves the road, passengers who are traveling in that vehicle may have grounds to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver.
