A man was killed early Saturday morning after a single-car crash in Woodbridge, Virginia.
The Prince William County Police Department said the crash happened at 2:45 a.m. in the 3500 block of Veronica Lane off Smoketown Road.
Officials said the driver of a 2014 Nissan Altima — identified as 36-year-old Justin Whitfield Brandon of Woodbridge — was driving southbound at a high speed when he lost control of the car. He then, according to police, “crossed into the northbound lanes” and left the roadway before hitting a number of trees and catching fire.
Brandon “was not wearing a seatbelt” and pronounced dead at the scene, according to a news release.
Police said that speed factored into the crash and no other vehicles were involved.
This is an ongoing investigation.
