By John Cooper, Virginia Beach Car Accident Lawyer
A fatal single vehicle crash occurred in Virginia Beach on the afternoon of August 6.
Grazia Moyers of Virginia Beach Police said officers responded to the scene of a vehicle crash at London Bridge Road and Drakesmile Road around 4 p.m, reported WAVY.com
She said there was one vehicle and two victims; one person was pronounced dead. The other person was injured at the scene of the accident that led to the closure of Shipps Corner Road from Old Clubhouse Road and London Bridge Road.
My thoughts as a Virginia Beach car accident lawyer are with the family of the deceased person. It’s not clear if the person who died in this crash was a driver or a passenger. A passenger will often have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit where a driver is at-fault. In some cases the family of a deceased passenger has grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
If you have been hurt in a single car accident or a family member has been killed you should consider contacting a Virginia Beach injury lawyer who can help you at this traumatic time.
