AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) — A Staunton man is being treated for life-threatening injuries after he was hit by a car on Thursday evening.

According to Virginia State Police, 27-year-old Jeremy Cupp, of Staunton, was standing on the shoulder of Route 11 in Mount Sidney, near Overlook Avenue, waiting for a bus at 7 p.m. on May 16.

Cupp was standing on the southbound side of the road, just across from the Royal Food Mart in Mount Sidney.
