A single-car accident in Spotsylvania County on Saturday morning has claimed the lives of two area men.
Joshua Shane Selby, 22, of Sumerduck was driving a 1994 Acura Integra north on Piney Branch Road (State Route 624) 1/5 of a mile from Brock Road (State Route 613) around 2 a.m. when the accident occurred, said state police Sgt. F.L. Tyler.
Selby apparently crossed the center line and ran off the road to his left, where he hit a mailbox and crashed into a tree, Tyler said. Both he and his passenger, Joseph Harley Shaffer, 30, of Spotsylvania were fatally injured and died at the scene.
Neither man was wearing a seat belt, Tyler said.
State Trooper Bethany Finch is the investigating officer.
