The accident, reported at 1:05 a.m. at Buffalo Creek at the Farmville bypass, summoned fire department members and the Prince Edward Volunteer Rescue Squad, Goss said.

He said the victim was transported by helicopter to the VCU Medical Center in Richmond.

“It looked like a single-vehicle ran off the road on the left-hand side, overturned and struck a tree,” Goss said.
