Man dies in Caroline crash

A Maryland man died after a crash in Caroline County early this morning.

According to Virginia State Police Sgt. Thomas Molnar, troopers responded to a single-vehicle crash at about 6 a.m. on Jericho Road, west of Hewlett Road.

The crash occurred when the driver of a 1994 Cadillac Sedan ran off the right side of the roadway and struck a tree stump, Molnar said. He said the impact caused the vehicle to overturn before coming to rest onto its roof.

Samuel B. Herbert Jr., 81, of the 45000 block of Novosel Court in California, Md., died at the scene. Molnar said it remains under investigation whether he was wearing a seat belt.

Jericho Road was closed approximately two hours. Speed and alcohol are not considered factors in the crash., Molnar said.

The Caroline County Sheriff’s Office assisted the State Police in the ongoing investigation.
