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.
One day you wash up on the beach, wet and naked. Another day you wash back out. In between, the scenery changes constantly.
