Thirteen cars were involved in a chain of crashes on Interstate 95 in Spotsylvania County Wednesday afternoon, according to Virginia State Police.

The first accident took place at 2:44 p.m., according to VSP, at the 116 mile marker on northbound I-95.

The initial crash then caused a chain of secondary, reaction-style crashes after a sedan spun out in the rain.

Three separate crashes in total were reported at the location.

Only one person was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Rain is thought to be a causative factor in the crashes.

This incident is still under investigation.
