On Friday, August 7, 2020 at approximately 10:25 PM, Virginia Beach Emergency Communications received a call for service for a single vehicle crash in the 3900 block of North Landing Road in the city of Virginia Beach.
The preliminary investigation suggests that an SUV was traveling northbound on North Landing Road from Chesapeake into Virginia Beach at a high rate of speed. After the vehicle crossed the North Landing Bridge, it went off the road and struck a pole and several objects, which caused it to overturn. The driver of the vehicle was a 17-year-old juvenile male and sustained non-life-threatening injuries that resulted in him being transported to a local hospital. Nightingale responded for the 17-year-old female passenger who sustained life-threatening injuries.
This is still a very active scene being investigated by the Fatal Crash Team (FACT). The North Landing Bridge will be shut down for several hours in both directions for further investigation. Please use alternate routes and avoid the area.
This is all the information available at this time.
