HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) - A 20-year-old man is fighting for his life after the car he was riding in crashed into a Hampton home Sunday.
Hampton Police spokeswoman Cpl. Mary Shackelford said the city's Emergency 911 center took calls of a reckless driver in the Grandview area at 6 p.m. As officers were responding to the scene, dispatchers notified police the call had been upgraded to a crash.
Police arrived at the scene in the 900 block of Beach Road to find a Honda Civic had struck the front porch of a house. Shackelford said medics took the 20-year-old male passenger to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and the 22-year-old male driver to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
The people inside the home were not hurt.
Shackelford said the driver of the car was traveling east on Beach Road when he lost control, went off the road and hit the house. The preliminary investigation indicated that speed was a contributing factor in the crash.
The investigation into the accident continues. Anyone with information should contact the Hampton Police Division at (757) 727-6111 or Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation said work to secure the Bonner Bridge could take anywhere from a week to 90 days.
