RICHMOND, Va. — The driver of a Corvette that flipped in a South Richmond neighborhood Saturday morning has died and a passenger remains hospitalized.
Police said the single-vehicle wreck happened around 9 a.m. in the 4000 block of Crutchfield Street and resulted in both passengers sustaining injuries, with one passenger being ejected from the car.
Both victims were transported to Chippenham Hospital where the driver later died of his injuries. His name has not yet been released.
Witnesses told reporter Sandra Jones they saw the Corvette drive through several lawns before the car flipped.
Neighbors said drivers speeding on residential street near George Wythe High School, which had a speed limit of 25 mph, is a problem.
