HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) - Several accidents are being reported along the roadways this morning.
Chesapeake police tell WAVY.com State Police responded to 54 traffic crashes and 11 disabled vehicle calls Thursday morning from 3 a.m. to 10 a.m. Troopers have also investigated three hit and run incidents, police said.
State police spokeswoman Michelle Anaya said the majority of accidents only involved damaged vehicles; no fatalities have been reported thus far.
Just before 8:30 a.m., police were called to the report of a multi-vehicle crash working on Interstate 264 Westbound at Rosemont Road in Virginia Beach. There is a significant traffic backup as a result. VDOT is recommending drivers use Virginia Beach Boulevard as an alternate route to go around the accident and get back on I-264.
Another accident at around 9:30 a.m. slowed traffic at the intersection of Hampton Boulevard and King Street in Hampton. Dispatchers say multiple vehicles are involved. One person was injured, however the extent of their injuries is unknown.
An earlier accident was also reported westbound on I-264 at Mount Trashmore, but has since been cleared.
Another shut down the eastbound ramp from I-64 to I-264, heading from Norfolk to Virginia Beach. This caused extensive traffic woes.
Motorists are reminded to slow down, give yourself a little room between you and the car ahead of you and a little extra time.
Caution lights are up at all of the tunnels and bridges to remind folks to slow down. Bridges, overpasses and ramps may be icy.
