Virginia Beach emergency crews responded to a deck collapse Sunday night in Sandbridge. Dispatchers said calls came in just after 8:30 p.m. for the incident in the 3000 block of Sandfiddler Road. As of 9 p.m., dispatchers said minor injuries were reported. VBEMS tweeted shortly after saying seven people were being evaluated and three were being transported for further treatment — but none of the injuries were considered life-threatening. There is no information on additional injuries at this time. This is the second deck that has failed in the area in just over the past two months. In July, five people were injured after a deck at a home in the 3600 block of Sandfiddler Road collapsed.
