NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Virginia State Police are investigating a fatal accident on the off ramp to Terminal Boulevard from I-564 in Norfolk.
Sgt. Michelle Anaya confirmed the single-vehicle crash happened around 1:40 p.m.
An investigation indicates a 2006 Ford utility work van was trying to take the off ramp to Terminal Boulevard from I-564 when the driver lost control and ran off the roadway. The vehicle went through a guardrail and struck a tree before coming to a stop in a creek, Anaya said.
Anaya said the driver, 59-year-old Harold Anthony Davis, was not wearing a seat belt and died from injuries sustained during the crash.
Alcohol was not a factor in this incident, Anaya said. It is not yet known if a medical condition played a part in the crash.
