Fatal High-Speed Chase Ends in Virginia Beach Crash

Virginia accident lawyers: As per (WAVY) — Tragedy unfolded on the Eastern Shore as a high-speed pursuit spanning over 50 miles concluded in Virginia Beach, resulting in the death of a male driver. The incident transpired on February 23 around 8:25 p.m. when state police attempted to halt a 2024 black Chevrolet pickup truck clocked at 92 mph in a 55-speed limit zone.

The driver, navigating southbound on Route 13 in Exmore, failed to comply with law enforcement’s attempts to stop him. After the pursuit, authorities discovered that the vehicle had been reported stolen from New York.

As the pursuit extended into the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, state police and Northampton County deputies discontinued their chase, with the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel Police Department continuing the pursuit across the bridge and into Virginia Beach.

Upon entering Virginia Beach, local troopers initiated pursuit of the suspect vehicle. The chase culminated in a tragic crash on Shore Drive and Atlantic Avenue, where the driver lost control, careening off the roadway into a tree line.

Troopers rushed to assist, finding the driver with severe, life-threatening injuries. Despite initially communicating with troopers, the man succumbed to his injuries shortly after. The Medical Examiner’s Office will release the driver’s identity once the next-of-kin is notified, according to the State Police.
