WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Three Virginia State Troopers were struck by cars in a twelve-hour period on Tuesday.
"Not common to have two in one day, but it is common to have a trooper or another law enforcement officer struck while working on the side of the highway," Virginia State Police Sergeant Steven Mittendorff explained.
The troopers involved in the accidents all suffered non-life threatening injuries, according to Virginia State Police.
The first accident occurred at about 3:30 a.m. along the southbound lanes of I-95 near the 152 mile marker in Prince William County, police said.
