DALE CITY, Va. (CBSDC/AP) — Virginia State Police say they are searching for a vehicle that dragged a man along Interstate 95 in Dale City.
Police say a dark, late-model sedan was heading north on the interstate about 6:50 p.m. Thursday when a rear door opened and a man fell out near the 156 mile marker. Authorities say the man was then dragged by the vehicle for more than 200 feet before tumbling into the roadway. Police say the vehicle, which had three other men inside, continued traveling north on the roadway.
The 35-year-old Dale City victim was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital. His injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Police say they are trying to determine if the man was thrown from the vehicle or jumped out.
