Five Vehicle Truck Crash on Route 58 in Chesapeake Leaves Two Injured
Route 58 is one of the busiest and most hazardous highways in Hampton Roads. Earlier this month, a five vehicle crash on Route 58 in Chesapeake sent two people to local hospitals.
The crash on Oct. 8 left a tractor-trailer on its side. When big rigs are involved in accidents, other motorists often end up injured. Paramedics transported two people to area hospitals after the crash at 5:45 a.m. near the Hampton Roads Executive Airport.
Virginia Department of Transportation officials said the accident scene on Route 58 westbound was cleared soon after 9 a.m. The cause of the crash was unclear. Police said the injuries sustained were non-life-threatening.
We hope the people involved in this wreck make a speedy recovery. As Chesapeake truck accident lawyers, we know how an injury sustained in a crash can change your life in seconds, resulting in lost wages, high medical bills, and long recovery times.

Route 58 in Chesapeake and nearby Suffolk is the scene of many serious crashes. This is an important and busy commuter route close to the chaotic Bowers Hill Interchange in Chesapeake.
A month earlier in September, Suffolk Fire and Rescue responded to another early morning crash on Route 58. The emergency services received a call at 4:48 a.m. and found four seriously damaged vehicles in the roadway.
Three people were taken to local hospitals for the treatment of potentially life-threatening injuries.
On Oct. 8, another crash was reported on westbound 58 in Suffolk near Bob Foeller Drive when two vehicles crashed. A driver was cut out of a vehicle and taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.
About six months earlier, police and fire crews were called to a serious accident on the same stretch of Route 58 in Suffolk. The Suffolk Police Department and Suffolk Fire & Rescue responded to a call on March 3 to a wreck involving three passenger vehicles and a dump truck on Route 58 Westbound of Portsmouth Boulevard. The accident scene was at Bob Foeller Drive near a landfill.
Many slower-moving dump trucks and garbage trucks appear on the highway in his location, posing a danger to drivers.
Route 58 has seen numerous accidents in recent years including the tragic death of a 3-year-old boy from Franklin in a Suffolk wreck that injured five others.
On that occasion, police determined the driver of a Toyota passenger vehicle traveling east on Route 58 lost control of the car, crossed the median and hit a Mazda minivan that was traveling west on 58. A year before that accident, a wreck in the 6200 block of Holland Road/Route 58 in Suffolk claimed the life of a woman.
We remain concerned about the crash record of Route 58 in Suffolk and Chesapeake. This is a fast and congested commuter route that sees considerable hazards mornings and evenings.
