Speed a factor in car accident in Virginia Beach
Two people suffered serious injuries last Wednesday afternoon after crashing into a tree, officials said.
The crash which happened around 2pm after the victims were traveling west on Providence Road in a 2000 Hyundai Elantra when the driver lost control of the vehicle, swerved off the road to the right and struck a tree head-on.
Firefighters responded and had to cut the driver from the vehicle because he’d been pinned inside, said Officer Adam Bernstein, a police spokesman.
The driver, a 23-year-old male, and a passenger where transported to a local hospital for treatment for serious injuries, Bernstein said.
Speed was a factor in the crash, and neither victim was wearing a seatbelt, Bernstein said.
No criminal charges have been filed. The automobile accident remains under investigation.
