A 37-year-old man died in a crash Tuesday morning, according to the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office.

The name of the man, and a passenger who was injured, have not been released because the sheriff’s office is still trying to contact the next of kin, said spokesman Bill Kennedy.

The crash happened shortly after 11:30 a.m. at the intersection of Flippo and Widewater roads in North Stafford.

Kennedy said the Ford Explorer ran off the road and overturned.

The passenger was ejected, but the driver remained in the SUV, according to Kennedy.

He did not have details on the passenger’s injuries but believed they are non-life-threatening.
