A 19-year-old Virginia Department of Transportation construction worker was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident late last week. WAVY-TV 10 News reports that the collision occurred Friday at around 3 a.m. near the Broad Creek Bridge.

A spokesperson for the Virginia State Police, Sgt. Michelle Anaya, stated the worker was retrieving cones from a construction zone along the highway and placing them into the rear of a pickup truck, when the 32-year-old driver of a 2006 Dodge Charger suddenly drifted into the lane where work was taking place and struck the young man, pinning him beneath the truck.

Rescue crews were forced to amputate the worker’s leg at the scene in order to free him from the wreckage. The victim was then rushed to a local hospital where he remains in serious but stable condition. Two other workers suffered less severe injuries as a result of the Norfolk car accident as well.

Investigators charged the driver of the Charger with reckless driving and driving on a suspended license. They say that alcohol may have also been a factor in the crash and additional charges against the man are pending toxicology results.

The Norfolk Personal Injury Lawyers with Lowell “The Hammer” Stanley say motorists have a responsibility when driving through construction zones to protect the safety of workers in the area by being vigilant about speed limits and staying sober behind the wheel at all times.
