HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - At 11:18 a.m. Thursday, a tractor trailer stopped in the left I-95 northbound travel lane was struck in the rear by a 2005 Ford Mustang.

The accident occurred near the Atlee/Elmont exit at milemarker  86.

The Mustang was wedged underneath the truck and the driver suffered serious, life-threatening injuries.  The driver was airlifted to VCU.  The tractor trailer driver was not hurt.

The tractor trailer was carrying 43, 000 lbs of bird feed and was stopped in the left lane because the center and right lanes were closed because of work at the Lewistown Road Bridge.
