Suffolk, VA (March 6, 2024) – A major vehicle collision reported on Monday morning in Suffolk claimed one person’s life while leaving multiple other victims injured. The accident prompted the response of the Suffolk Department of Fire & Rescue, police, and emergency medical services.

At approximately 7:00 a.m. on March 4, 52-year-old Ray Fulayter was driving west on Portsmouth Boulevard when his vehicle collided with a second vehicle in the area near C Street. The incident prompted the closure of the roadway. Two people were injured in the crash and transported to an area hospital by ambulance for medical care. Fulayter was severely hurt in the accident. He was airlifted and flown to a local hospital by the Nightingale helicopter. Authorities confirmed that he passed away after arriving. At this time, the crash is under investigation.

We hope the two people hurt in this accident recover quickly.

We offer our condolences to the family of Ray Fulayter.

Fatal Car Accidents in Virginia

Fatal accidents claim the lives of hundreds of individuals annually in Virginia, and sadly, a significant number of these incidents are entirely preventable. Speeding drivers risk losing control and colliding with others, while impaired drivers may lack the responsibility to operate their vehicles safely. Additionally, accidents resulting from tailgating, failure to yield, and various other acts of negligence further contribute to the toll. Unfortunately, these accidents can have an overwhelming impact on the surviving family members.

Despite the fact that we see so many accidents take place every year as a result of vehicle collisions in our state, preparing for the impact of a fatal crash on your family is impossible. Families often find it challenging to move forward, dealing with the emotional turmoil following the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one. Additionally, many families are burdened with towering financial challenges after such tragic collisions. Families are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical costs, burial expenses, and more. To make matters even more challenging, many families lose a source of income after losing their loved one in an accident.

In the aftermath of losing a loved one, seeking guidance from a Suffolk wrongful death lawyer is crucial. Your family may have legal avenues to secure financial compensation, and early guidance from a dedicated legal team enhances the chances of gathering strong evidence against the defendant.
