HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Virginia State Police said a motorcyclist sustained life-threatening injuries Sunday night after they hit a crash cushion truck then hit a second vehicle.

Virginia State Police said the three-vehicle crash happened around 9 p.m. Sunday on Interstate 64 westbound in Hampton, near the I-664 interchange.
