[ARCHIVED] Three taken to area hospital following evening MVA


NORFOLK, Va. – Three people have been transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital following an evening motor vehicle accident.

Shortly before 9:00 p.m., Norfolk Fire-Rescue was called to the scene of a two-car accident involving a police vehicle. Responding medics transported two officers and one civilian to an area hospital for treatment of what has been described as non-life threatening injuries.

The preliminary investigation has confirmed a man driving a Toyota Camry was traveling westbound in the 2800 block of E. Princess Anne Road and attempted to cross over the eastbound lanes to turn left onto Merrimac Avenue. The driver of the Toyota Camry failed to yield for oncoming traffic and was struck by a marked police vehicle traveling eastbound in the 2800 block of E. Princess Anne Road.

The police vehicle was occupied by two officers and was not responding to any calls for service at the time the accident occurred. The driver of the Toyota Camry was the vehicle's only occupant.

All three are listed in stable condition, but remain hospitalized for precautionary treatment.

Charges against the driver of the Camry are currently pending.

At this time, there is no further information available for release.
