A police officer and a fire fighter were among those injured in a four-vehicle crash in Hampton, according to the Hampton Police Division.
Police spokesman Sgt. Jason Price said a police officer and a firefighter arrived to the intersection of Hampton Roads Center Parkway and Magruder Boulevard just after 6 p.m. on Wednesday to respond to a two-vehicle accident at the intersection.
There was a second accident about 20 minutes later. Police said the driver of a Honda going west on Hampton Roads Center Parkway lost control of the car, hitting a fire utility vehicle, a Jeep and a marked police car, Price said. It was not clear if the Jeep was involved in the first accident.
Emergency workers such as police officers and paramedics often work in dangerous environments. Last year my colleague John Cooper wrote about how a Virginia Beach police officer was hurt in a crash involving a red light runner.
Fortunately, in the crash in Hampton, none of the four people who were injured sustained life-threatening injuries. That’s not to say their injuries were not serious. If you have been hurt in an accident involving a car that crashes into vehicles at an accident scene, you are likely to have grounds to file a claim for your injuries against that driver’s insurance policy.
