The man, identified as 52-year-old Clarence Edward Whitehurst Jr. of Chesapeake, was transported to the hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Whitehurst was the sole occupant of the vehicle, and no other vehicles were involved in the crash. The impact of the collision caused a gas leak, which has since been contained, and led to a power outage in the surrounding area, affecting many residents and businesses.

The aftermath of the crash left significant damage not only to the vehicle but also to the utility pole and the business’s infrastructure. Emergency services worked swiftly to address the gas leak and restore power to the area, ensuring public safety and minimizing further disruption.
