A dead humpback whale surfaced in the Chesapeake Bay near the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel.So it was hit and run?
The Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response team pulled the dead whale out of the water near Craney Island on Thursday afternoon.
"Once daylight broke, a number of citizens say it," said Alexander Costidias with the Virginia Aquarium. " It's pretty common near the bridges too and becoming much more common."
Crews will now perform a necropsy to determine a cause of death, but a team official tells 13News Now the whale has injuries consistent with propeller wounds.
