Accidents in which vehicles hit buildings are more common than we imagine. Last year a store in Lucama, NC, was wrecked when a big rig hit it.
The crash at the 7-Eleven was the second in 12 hours in Norfolk and Virginia Beach. On Wednesday night, a two-vehicle crash near the Oceanfront in Virginia Beach led to one person becoming trapped.
The crash occurred at the intersection of Pacific Avenue and 5th Street. Two vehicles were involved and one person was transported to a local hospital with injuries that police said were not critical.
