PORTSMOUTH - A man was killed when his car flipped after hitting another car in Portsmouth early Friday.  

Va. State Police say 39-year-old Rodney D. Fitzpatrick of Hampton was thrown from his 2009 Ford Escort onto I-264 East near the Downtown Tunnel.  Investigators say he rear-ended a 2010 Chevy Camaro, lost control and overturned several times.

The 2:00 a.m. accident closed the east bound lanes for about two hours and traffic was detoured at Frederick Boulevard.

The driver of the Camaro wasn't hurt, police added.
