Virginia State Police say they received several distress calls just after 7 a.m. Wednesday about a vehicle in the median around mile-marker 227 on I-64 eastbound.

Troopers arrived to find a 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander had run off the interstate into the wooded median and struck a tree.

The person, a male, was entrapped in the vehicle and had life-threatening injuries.

Med flight was called to the scene but couldn’t respond because of weather conditions.
