The Virginian-Pilot recently reported that a motor vehicle accident left one person dead and others injured in Norfolk, Virginia. According to the report, the deceased individual was a passenger who exited the vehicle he was traveling in, which was parked in the travel lane, to put something in the trunk of the car. As he was doing so, another car read-ended the vehicle thus causing the decedent to become trapped between the two cars. Police and rescue crews arrived on the scene immediately and took the decedent to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. The drivers of the other vehicles were treated for non-life-threatening injuries and are expected to be fine. The crash is under investigation.
