Driver Suffers Life Threatening Injuries Following Crash on I-64




HAMPTON — Virginia State Police (VSP) has reported that a driver has suffered life threatening injuries as a result of a vehicle crash on Interstate 64 (I-64) on Saturday, July 17.


At approximately 4:04 a.m., VSP responded to a two vehicle crash on I-64 at the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel (HRBT).


A preliminary investigation showed that Wilson Christopher Lee was driving a 2009 Mercedes and was traveling I-64 eastbound on the east side of the HRBT’s south island. He fell asleep at the wheel and struck a Dodge 5500 tow truck that was stopped just inside the tunnel’s work zone. VSP states that the tow truck was fully illuminated at the time of the crash.


The tow truck was pushed 391 feet after being impacted by Lee’s vehicle. The driver of the tow truck was not in the vehicle at time and was picking up debris.


Lee was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and suffered life threatening injuries. VSP states that he was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash and it has also determined that alcohol was not a contributing factor.


Lee has been charged with reckless driving.
