Suffolk Police and Suffolk Fire & Rescue responded to three separate crashes that are affecting the evening commute.
Emergency Communications was first contacted at 3:14 p.m. advising of a crash in the area of Route 58 Bypass and Wilroy Road westbound, according to a city press release. Upon preliminary investigation, it was determined that three passenger vehicles were involved. All of the drivers received emergency medical assessment from Suffolk Fire & Rescue personnel with no one requiring medical transport. Lanes of travel were initially closed following the accident; however, all lanes are now open.
Shortly thereafter, a two-vehicle wreck occurred in the same area on the eastbound side of Route 58. Upon preliminary investigation, it was determined a rear-end collision occurred between two passenger vehicles. Both drivers received emergency medical assessment and treatment by Suffolk Fire & Rescue personnel and no one required medical transport. At this time, one eastbound lane is closed.
A third accident was reported in the same area with a vehicle found in the grass median, unrelated to the other two accidents. No injuries were reported.
Motorists can expect delays in the area while all involved vehicles involved in the accidents are removed. Investigations into each of these crashes remain ongoing at this time.
