HANOVER COUNTY, Va. (WWBT) - One person is fighting for their life and two more people are hurt after a crash on I-95 near Lewistown Road.

Those tires then went across the median, hitting a 2020 Honda Passport traveling in the left lane and a 2018 Freightliner hauling fuel traveling in the right lane.


All three people who were hurt were in the Honda. The Freightliner driver was not hurt, and the truck was not severely damaged.

The tractor trailer that lost the tandem tires did not stop and has not been located.
