Car overturns after trying to pass dump truck in Norfolk

NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Charges are pending against a driver whose car overturned after trying to pass a dump truck on Tuesday. 

The crash happened just after 1 p.m. in the 2100 block of Kimball Terrace. 

Police say a dump truck was traveling eastbound on Kimball Terrace while a gray Nissan was three cars behind. 

As the dump truck slowed down to make a left turn into the construction yard, police say the Nissan crossed over the double solid line in the opposite traffic lane to attempting to pass the other cars and dump truck. 

The Nissan reportedly hit the front drivers side of the truck, which caused the car to spin into the guardrail and ultimately flip over. 

The driver of the Nissan was able to free himself from inside the car and was treated by medics at the scene. 

The dump truck driver was taken to the hospital for treatment and is expected to be okay. 

No other injuries were reported.
