CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) - Police are investigating a crash along Hull Street Road (Route 360) at Skinquarter Road in Moseley.

A man headed eastbound on Route 360 lost control of his motorcycle Monday afternoon and crashed in what police called a single-vehicle accident, Jon Burkett reported from the crash scene. Hull Street Road was shutdown after the crash so Med Flight could land and fly the injured motorcyclist to the hospital.

His injuries were considered life threatening.

All lanes of Hull Street Road reopened about 1 p.m., according to Chesterfield Fire and EMS spokesman Lt. Jason Elmore. He said police remained on scene to direct traffic through the area.

Due to past accidents, the area in which the crash occurred is known to locals as "Dead Man's Curve," according to Burkett.
