VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — No one was hurt in an accident that happened Sunday morning on I-264 in Virginia Beach which left a truck and the camper it was pulling resting on top of another car.
The accident happened shortly after 10 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I-264 about a quarter mile east of the Independence Blvd. exit.
According to a Virginia State Police spokesperson, a 2011 Dodge Ram pickup truck was pulling a camper trailer in the left lane when the camper trailer's brakes locked up, disabling the trailer. State Police at that time received a call reporting two disabled vehicles at that location. While troopers were on their way, the call was upgraded to a crash.
When they got there, police determined that a white 2013 Nissan Altima came upon the disabled vehicles. The driver attempted to change lanes to the right, but couldn't due to traffic congestion, and ended up hitting the rear end of the trailer and subsequently driving under it and then under the rear of the pickup truck.
Although the driver of the Altima was reportedly on a call on her cell phone using an earpiece when the accident happened, no charges were filed. All parties involved were insured.
