CHESAPEAKE, Va. – A man is dead after being ejected from a car during a crash in Chesapeake.

It happened on April 15 around 4:30 p.m. on I-464 south of Freeman Avenue.

Police say a 1998 Chevrolet Corvette was speeding on I-464 northbound at approximately 90 miles per hour.

The driver lost control of the car, hitting the guardrail. He then over corrected and hit a 2012 Dodge Caravan. After hitting the Caravan, the Corvette veered across the roadway, hitting the guardrail a second time and throwing the driver from the car.

The driver, identified as 67-year-old Tyrone Smith, suffered life threatening injuries and later died at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

Police say speeding was a contributing factor in the crash, but it’s unknown if alcohol was a contributing factor. Smith was not wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash.
