SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - An overturned car shut down part of Route 58 in Suffolk Tuesday morning.
The accident happened just before 9 a.m. on Holland Road at Longstreet Lane.
Emergency crews arrived to find a Ford Mustang flipped over in the median.
The two people inside were pinned and had to be cut out of the vehicle, said police spokeswoman Debbie George.
Police have charged Deloris A. Jones, 48, of Chesapeake with one count of reckless driving.
Police spokesperson Debbie George said Jones was traveling westbound on Holland Rd. when she became distracted by the radio and ran off the road. Jones then over corrected and struck the ditch and median. The vehicle rolled twice before coming to a rest on its roof, according to George.
Jones was transported by Nightingale to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. She has since been treated and released. The passenger of the vehicle was transported by ambulance to Sentara Obici hospital. There was no word on his condition.
Two lanes of traffic were shut down for about an hour.
