Suffolk Auto Accident Injury Attorney Report : Man is Killed in Five Vehicle Crash in Dumfries, VA
The congested highways of Hampton Roads and Northern Virginia can be a recipe for multi car accidents. But such crashes can also take place out of peak hours as demonstrated by a five vehicle pile-up on VA. 234 near Interstate 95 in the Dumfries area of Virginia, early on September 30, 2012.
Our experienced Suffolk, VA car accident injury lawyers are sad to report the death of one man in this accident.
InsideNova.com reported the multi vehicle accident occurred in the northbound lanes shortly after midnight not far from Van Buren Road.
The exact circumstances of the accident were unclear from the report. The victim who died was an adult male.
A number of factors can cause multi vehicle crashes but excess speed and traveling too closely are two major contributors. In July I reported on a five vehicle crash with injuries on Holland Road in Suffolk, VA.
It’s always important to maintain a safe distance, particularly in congested conditions or late at night when drivers may be less attentive.
