ORIGINAL STORY (Feb. 14):

A man is recovering tonight after a serious car crash into Cooks Creek near Rt. 33 a bit before the Silver Lake Road intersection [ map ] [ street view ].

At the scene, Virginia State Police told us an SUV swerved off the road. It then hit a guardrail, a telephone pole, and a tree before flipping over into a creek --and then catching on fire.

Troopers said the man had serious injuries. He was taken to Sentara RHM and troopers said he would likely be flown to UVa Medical Center for more advanced treatment.

We're still working to confirm his identity and condition.
