A series of crashes this morning along I-95 in Stafford County and once again involving a motorcycle.
just before 6 a.m. Northbound traffic slowed to a stop near the Quantico Exit. A car failed to stop in time and rear-ended another. A motorcyclist then rear ended the second car.
The impact of the crash sent the motorcycle into another Northbound lane. The motorcyclist was thrown in the opposite direction into a tractor trailer.
To avoid hitting the crashed motorcycle a three-car chain reaction accident happened in the Northbound lanes.
The motorcyclist was seriously injured and flown by helicopter to Inova Fairfax Hospital. He sustained life-threatening injuries.
No one else was injured.
The driver of the second car, 47-year-old Sandra Wilson of Ruther Glen is charged with following too closely.
