Beginning shortly before 12 p.m. today, Virginia State Police responded to a series of chain-reaction, multi-vehicle crashes in  the southbound lanes of Interstate 95 stretching from the 143 to the 141 mile markers in Stafford County.
There are several tractor-trailers and passenger vehicles involved in five separate crashes. At least four people have reported injuries — but none that appear to be life-threatening. The causes of the crashes are under investigation.
