VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - A pedestrian suffered serious injuries after being hit by a vehicle while walking on the sidewalk in Virginia Beach Thursday.
The crash occurred around 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Virginia Beach Boulevard and Groveland Road. Tonya Borman with the Virginia Beach Police Department told WAVY.com a 2004 Toyota Prius was traveling westbound on Virginia Beach Boulevard and attempted to make a left turn onto Groveland Road.
According to witnesses and evidence, another vehicle attempted to travel around the Prius to make the same left turn. Because of this, the driver of the Prius couldn’t see until the vehicle passed and he struck a 2012 Toyota Corolla traveling eastbound on Virginia Beach Boulevard.
The impact of the crash caused the Corolla to go onto the sidewalk, hitting the pedestrian, Borman said. The pedestrian was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.
Borman said charges were pending.
