Injured Passenger Receives $350,000 Over Red Light Crash in Virginia Beach
Red light runners cause numerous accidents on the highways of Virginia Beach, Norfolk and Newport News.
In a recent case a $350,000 settlement was reached in a case in which a driver ignored red turn arrows in Virginia Beach, hitting a vehicle.
Virginia Lawyers Weekly reported the plaintiff was a passenger in a car that was driven by the red light runner. They were heading east on Princess Anne Road at its intersection with Lynnhaven Parkway in Virginia Beach. The driver came to a stop at the intersection.
“When the green lights activated for eastbound traffic on Princess Anne Road, defendant proceeded against the red turn arrows and began to travel eastbound on Lynnhaven Parkway, colliding with a vehicle that was lawfully travelling westbound on Princess Anne Road,” reported Virginia Lawyers Weekly.
The passenger was seriously injured. He stayed for 11 days in Virginia Beach General Hospital and spent a portion of his time on a ventilator. His injuries included a renal laceration, right sided retroperitoneal hemorrhage and right displaced sacral fracture. His medical bills exceeded $134,000.
