Police in Newport News responded Friday morning to an injury accident with entrapment.
According to the Newport News Police Department, the unidentified driver of a white pickup truck was traveling along U.S. Route 60 (Warwick Boulevard) around 7:10 a.m. As the pickup approached Copeland Drive, near Mariners Museum Park, a red Volkswagen attempted to make a left-hand turn from Copeland Drive to Warwick Bouelvard and crossed into the path of the pickup.
The pickup’s driver was unable to avoid a collision, and struck the Volkswagen on the driver’s side in T-bone fashion. Firefighters used hydraulic extrication tools to free the Volkswagen’s driver.
Paramedics transported the driver of the Volkswagen to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Investigators indicated that the pickup had the right of way. The National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that driver error was the primary cause in 90 percent of major traffic crashes.
