Update: The driver involved in a crash on Godwin Blvd. on Monday has been identified as Johnathan Deshawn Hill, a 39-year-old man from Norfolk. 

He is still in the hospital and is listed in fair condition. 

Suffolk, Va. – Suffolk Police and Suffolk Fire & Rescue crews responded this morning to a single vehicle accident in the 4900 block of Godwin Boulevard/Route 10 near Moore Farm Lane with an entrapment, officials tell NewsChannel 3.

Emergency Communications received the call at 6:28 a.m. advising that a Ford Explorer traveling southbound ran off the road to the left and struck a tree.

The male driver was entrapped and sustained life threatening injuries. He received emergency medical assessment and treatment by Suffolk Fire & Rescue personnel, including volunteers from the Chuckatuck Volunteer Fire Department prior to being ground transported to Sentara Obici Hospital where he will then be airlifted by Nightingale to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

The passenger also received emergency medical assessment and treatment and was ground transported to Riverside Hospital for treatment of what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

The roadway is expected to be completely shut down in both directions until approximately 7:45 a.m., and then one lane will remain closed for an unknown amount of time as the investigation continues and the vehicle is removed from the roadway.
