Suffolk, Va. – Route 58 at Blackwater Bridge (Franklin Bypass) has had a number of single car accidents with minor injuries.

There has not been one big accident, according to Tim Kelley, Suffolk City Spokesperson. Kelley says these accidents appear to be drivers slipping on the roadway and colliding with the guardrail.

Route 58 is open and police are on scene. Wreckers arriving to assist with the vehicle removals have slowed traffic.

These accidents have been occurring on both the Suffolk and Southampton County sides of this stretch of road.
