[ARCHIVED] Police identify man killed in crash Tuesday morning on E. Little Creek Road

NORFOLK, Va. (NPD) – Police have identified the man killed in a crash that occurred Tuesday morning on E. Little Creek Road as 52-year-old Matt. G. Fritzinger.

The crash occurred around 6:50 in the morning at the intersection of East Little Creek Road and Van Patten Road.

According to investigators, Fritzinger was driving his Nissan pick-up truck westbound in the eastbound lanes when his vehicle sideswiped another vehicle at the intersection of Tidewater Drive.  The truck traveled down East Little Creek Road, where it ran off the road and struck several poles and a building at Southern Shopping Center.

The driver of the other vehicle that was hit was treated and released at the hospital.   

Fritzinger, of the 8200 block of Barkwood Drive, was taken to the hospital but died shortly after he arrived.

Investigators say speed appears to have been a contributing factor to this incident.

All lanes of East Little Creek from Dallas Street to Tidewater Drive were closed for several hours while police investigated this crash.
