CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- A man helping people involved in a crash on Interstate 95 suffered life-threatening injuries when he was struck by another car.

Virginia State Police responded to the crash on southbound I-95, near the Ruffin Mill Road (Exit 58) in Chesterfield County, at about 9:57 p.m.

"The Trooper’s preliminary investigation reveals that the incident was actually two separate crashes at the same location," Virginia State Police spokesperson Sgt. Keeli L. Hill said. "The first crash involved one vehicle with reports of minor injuries. The second crash involved an adult male driver of a Nissan Rogue that was pulled over on the right shoulder partially in the roadway assisting those involved in the first crash."

As the Rogue driver stood outside his car,  the driver as a passing Toyota sedan struck the Rogue driver and his vehicle.

"The [Rogue driver] was transported to the hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.  The driver of the Toyota was also transported for treatment of minor injuries," Sgt. Hill said.
