Virginia Beach, Va. – A Virginia Beach man was charged with a DUI after he rear-ended a Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Office van transporting inmates to the Virginia Beach Correctional Center and courthouse early Thursday morning.

Two deputies and three inmates suffered minor injuries while they were travelling at 45 mph when a grey 2015 Kia Forte rear-ended them at the intersection of South Independence boulevard and Nesbitt Drive around 6:20 a.m.
