NORFOLK, Va. - The Norfolk Police Department is investigating after a woman died from her injuries following a crash on E. Little Creek Road Friday afternoon.

According to police, the call for the crash came in around 5 p.m. Officers responded to the 1100 block of E. Little Creek Road, where they found the driver of the vehicle, 44-year-old Anitra C. Jones, suffering from serious injuries.

Police learned that Jones was traveling west on E. Little Creek Road when her vehicle left the roadway and struck two other vehicles. Jones' vehicle then overturned and crashed into a light pole.

Jones was taken to the hospital for treatment, but died shortly after arrival.

One of the other vehicles' occupants sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital for treatment. She is expected to recover.

Speed appears to be a factor, police said. It is currently unknown whether alcohol or an unknown medical condition contributed to the crash.
