NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Virginia State Police are investigating a two vehicle accident that left one person dead early Sunday morning.
Troopers responded to the accident around 2:03 a.m. near the Ballentine Blvd. exit on I-264 west.
State Police investigators say 23-year-old Portsmouth woman, Tara Glover, was driving a 1996 Nissan 200 westbound on I-264 when she hit an unknown vehicle that caused her to lose control of her car, run off the road and hit the jersey wall. The car flipped several times before coming to rest on its roof, according to State Police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Anaya.
A passenger escaped the vehicle before it was hit by a 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe. Glover sustained life-threatening injuries and died at the scene.
The westbound lanes of I-264 were closed for three hours while Troopers investigated the crash and traffic was diverted off the interstate.
Investigators have not determined whether Glover was wearing her seatbelt or if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
