PORTSMOUTH - A man was killed when his car flipped after hitting another car in Portsmouth early Friday.
Va. State Police say 39-year-old Rodney D. Fitzpatrick of Hampton was thrown from his 2009 Ford Escort onto I-264 East near the Downtown Tunnel. Investigators say he rear-ended a 2010 Chevy Camaro, lost control and overturned several times.
The 2:00 a.m. accident closed the east bound lanes for about two hours and traffic was detoured at Frederick Boulevard.
The driver of the Camaro wasn't hurt, police added.
