On busy highways in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and Chesapeake, multi-vehicle crashes occur frequently. We were saddened to read about an Indian River Road crash that caused serious injuries to a motorist.
The five-vehicle crash was reported in the 3100 block of Indian River Road in Virginia Beach just after 2 p.m. on Tuesday, reported WAVY.com.

Indian River Road in Virginia Beach has seen a spate of serious wrecks in recent years.
Earlier in 2017, a tragic crash made headlines when a delivery truck driver hit a car with two Indian River High School students inside.
One of the students was killed in the wreck and the other suffered serious injuries. The delivery truck driver was charged with offenses including DUI.
The parents of Kaitlyn Duffy, the Great Bridge High School senior who tragically lost her life in the spring, filed a $30 million wrongful death lawsuit against the truck driver and his employer, Great Bridge Furniture, the Virginian-Pilot reported.
The wrongful death suit reportedly accuses the store of negligence for hiring and retaining the trucker who is accused of driving intoxicated and entrusting him to drive the box truck.
The suit was filed on in early December in Circuit Court, seeks $10 million in compensatory damages and $20 million in punitive damages.
