HAMPTON — A 16-year-old Hampton boy was killed and another critically injured following a four-vehicle crash Monday night.
Police said the crash happened just before 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of West Pembroke Avenue and Powhatan Parkway.
“Upon officer’s arrival they (officers) located four vehicles, a moped, a Chevrolet pickup truck, a Hertz rental box truck, and a Nissan Maxima, that were all involved in the crash,” according to a Hampton Police news release.
The two 16-year-olds were on the moped. Both were taken to a hospital.
“Shortly after arriving at the hospital the 16-year-old driver of the moped was pronounced deceased,” police said.
The other Hampton teen remains in critical condition.
The driver of the Chevrolet pickup, a 60-year-old Hampton man, and the driver and passenger of the Hertz rental box truck were also taken to the hospital. Their injuries are non-life-threatening, police said.
The driver of the Nissan Maxima was not injured.
Police said the moped was stopped on West Pembroke Avenue (westbound) attempting to make a left-hand turn onto Powhatan Parkway (southbound) when the Chevrolet pickup that was traveling westbound on West Pembroke Avenue struck the rear of the moped.
The moped and pickup continued traveling into the intersection where both vehicles “made contact” with the Nissan Maxima that was making a left-hand turn from Powhatan Parkway onto West Pembroke Avenue (eastbound).
No other information about the crash was immediately released.
