One man is in critical condition after an accident on Interstate 81.

It happened just south of the Port Republic exit in Harrisonburg. Dalton Bowes was ejected from the car he was riding in when it rolled over several times.

Bowes, along with the driver 19-year-old Joseph Fassett , was taken to UVA by Pegasus.

Fassett was also ejected from the car. He is in serious condition.

A fifth passenger, Duynasti battles, has been transported to UVA in stable condition.

Traffic was delayed for more than an hour due to Pegasus landing on the interstate.
