Local News

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Neighbors on West Glen Road in Norfolk say they heard a loud boom Saturday night.

Dispatchers say they received the call for a crash at 9:18 p.m.

10 On Your Side learned that a car came around a bend, hit a power pole, a smaller tree and then hit another larger tree before coming to a rest.

Debris from the crash was scattered across Tara Taffe’s yard.

“It was really scary,” Taffe said. “It’s not something you would expect crawling into bed after an evening at home.”

Taffe says, neighbors nearby ran to help two people in the car before emergency crews took them away in an ambulance.

The road was blocked overnight as Dominion crews worked to restore power and replace the telephone pole.

Linda Adams lives one block away. She believes the driver was speeding.

Adams rides her bike to the Monticello Village Park every day and says it gets scary at times.

“I call this Monticello Racetrack,” said Adams. “Sometimes I feel like they are going to run me down.”

All of the neighbors agree drivers need to slow down in the area.

“There is just no excuse for someone to be driving through a residential neighborhood like that. It’s very disheartening,” said Taffe.

WAVY News is working to learn if anyone was injured or is facing any charges.
