RICHMOND, Va. -- The driver of a pickup hit several other vehicles along Interstate 95 north before crashing through a guardrail and landing on Arthur Ashe Boulevard Sunday afternoon, according to officials with Virginia State Police.

Sgt. Dylan Davenport said troopers were called to the crash just before 4 p.m.

"The investigation indicates that a pickup truck traveling north struck four vehicles before running off the road to the right, through guardrail, and then landing on Arthur Ashe Boulevard and catching fire," Davenport wrote.
