Shortly after 10 p.m., a Dodge Caravan was taking exit 156A from northbound Interstate 95 when it ran off the right side of the road, said state police spokeswoman Corinne Geller. The van hit a ditch and traveled along the embankment for about 200 feet before overturning onto its roof.

The driver, 46-year-old Bruce L. Dickerson, of Fredericksburg, died at the scene. He was wearing a seat belt.

Police continue to investigate the crash, she said.
