Two King George men die in crash Friday night

Two King George County men died Friday night when the car they were in ran off the road and struck a tree, Virginia State Police said.

Ryan L. Pitts, 34, who was the driver, and passenger Brian C. Pitts, 19, were pronounced dead at the scene. Both were wearing seatbelts.

State Police Sgt. Steve Vick said the Chrysler van was going south on Port Conway Road in King George—a mile south of State Route 3—when it ran off the road to the right around 8:30 p.m.  The driver overcorrected to the left and the vehicle hit a tree, he said.

Vick said in a news release that speed and alcohol are considered factors in the crash, which is still under investigation.
