DUNNSVILLE, Va. (AP) — Police say a Virginia man was killed when his all-terrain vehicle ran off the road and struck a ditch.

Virginia State Police identified the man as 34-year-old Jeremy Futchko of Tappahannock. Police said in a news release that they responded to a crash shortly before 3 a.m. Saturday on Route 610.
