A man walking in the left lane of northbound I-95 near mile marker 131.6 in Fredericksburg was struck by two cars in the early morning hours Friday, Sgt. Les Tyler of the Virginia State Police told Patch.
"At about 2:40 a.m. a 23-year-old male from Spotsylvania driving a 2013 Dodge Dart observed a pedestrian walking in his lane," Tyler said. "He cut to the left shoulder to avoid the pedestrian," he said. The right mirror of the car struck the man.
A short time later, a 2004 Volkswagen Passat in the northbound left lane came upon the pedestrian. "The pedestrian was still standing when he was struck by the second vehicle," Tyler said. The driver of the Passat was a 17-year-old male from Stafford.
Hector Rolando Xitumul-Alvarado, 21, of unknown address, was transported to Mary Washington Hospital Center. He has severe trauma, according to Fredericksburg Deputy Fire Chief Mike Jones.
The crash is still under investigation.
