Virginia State Police are investigating a single-vehicle crash in Dinwiddie County on Friday evening that killed an adult man and left two boys hospitalized with serious injuries.
State troopers were called to Interstate 85 near the Carson Road exit just before 6 p.m. Friday after reports of a crash.
Police say a 2007 Ford pickup truck was traveling north when it ran off the left side of the road. The driver, Ronnie Humphrey of Reidsville, N.C., was able to re-enter the roadway but overcorrected and went off the right side of the highway and hit a ditch, which overturned the vehicle.
Humphrey, 35, who police say was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.
Two other passengers in the vehicle at the time of the crash were taken to VCU Medical Center for treatment. A 10-year-old boy, who also was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle, is being treated for life-threatening injuries. A 3-year-old boy was in a child safety seat in the vehicle. His injuries, while serious, are not considered life-threatening at this time.
