Two Killed on Virginia’s Eastern Shore in Head-On Collision

By John Cooper, VA Wrongful Death Attorney

The two brothers died a,nd two people were seriously injured in the head-on crash on Va. 175 on the Chincoteague Causeway. Wrong-way drivers are not uncommon, according to VDOT, of the more than 42,000 people killed on our nation’s highways annually, over 25,000—almost 60 percent—died in crashes caused when their vehicles veered from the lane. In some cases, the vehicle crossed the center line and was involved in a head-on crash or opposite direction sideswipe. In others, the vehicle left the roadway to roll over or impact one or more natural or man-made objects, such as trees, utility poles, bridge walls, embankments or guardrails.
