A 1997 Chevrolet Blazer, owned by Leander Dwayne Pugh, 57, of Portsmouth, was parked and disabled on the right shoulder. A 2010 Chevrolet Malibu was parked facing the Blazer as the driver, Donnelly Williams, attempted to jump-start the Blazer.

Pugh was standing behind the Blazer when Hines, driver of a Chrysler 300, ran off the road to the right and struck Pugh and his vehicle. The impact caused the Blazer to strike Williams and his vehicle.

Both men were taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with serious injuries. Pugh later succumbed to his injuries, and Williams suffered a severed leg, the press release stated.
