Man killed in Sunday crash

A Locust Grove man died in a single-vehicle crash early Sunday morning in Orange County.

The accident happened shortly after 1 a.m. on State Route 20 near Unionville, Sgt. Les Tyler with the Virginia State Police said.

A Honda Accord driven by 34-year-old Ryan Coleman Jordan ran off the right side of the highway near State Route 725, Tyler said.

The car then drove over a culvert, hit a utility pole and overturned several times. The driver was ejected and died at the scene.

Tyler said the man was not wearing his seat belt.

No cause has been established, but Tyler said alcohol did not play a role in the crash.

Trooper B.J. Hobbs is handling the investigation.
