On April 25, 2018 at 12:04 p.m., Hampton Police were dispatched to Route 8, near Clearview Road, for a three vehicle accident. Upon arrival, the officers discovered that both northbound lanes were blocked, and the left passing lane for southbound traffic was also blocked. One vehicle operator sustained a facial injury, as well as an injury to his right hand. The operator was transported to the hospital for further evaluation. The accident occurred when the operator of one vehicle failed to stop for a car stopped in the passing lane waiting to turn left onto a side street. The vehicle rear ended the second vehicle, which caused the second vehicle to drift into the northbound lane, and into the path of a third oncoming car. Those two vehicles then collided. Two cars had to be towed from the scene.
