Suffolk, Va. – Suffolk Police and Suffolk Fire & Rescue responded this morning to a single vehicle accident with an entrapment in the 2600 block of Holland Road/Route 58 near King’s Mobile Home Park.

Police received the call at 12:37 a.m. advising that the Nissan Sentra was traveling eastbound and crossed over to the westbound lane where it then ran off the road before it overturned and came to rest in a ditch against a tree.

The female driver, age 24, was entrapped and sustained serious injuries, police say. Firefighters used the jaws of life to remove the roof in order to extricate her from the vehicle. She received emergency medical assessment and treatment by Suffolk Fire & Rescue personnel and was listed in stable condition prior to being ground transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

Westbound Holland Road is currently closed in both directions. Public Works staff is also responding and will assist in setting up one lane of traffic in each direction on the eastbound side. One lane on the westbound side is expected to remain closed for several hours as the investigation continues and the vehicle is removed.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
