NORFOLK, Va. — A man was killed in a vehicle crash on Interstate 64 in James City County Wednesday morning, Virginia State Police said.
The crash happened in the westbound direction of the interstate around the line of James City County and New Kent. Virginia state troopers were dispatched just after 7 a.m.
The car was a 2012 Honda Accord, and the driver, 42-year-old Carlos Travis Cutler of Grafton, was found dead at the scene.
Investigators believe that Cutler was driving fast down the road when he was cut off by a vehicle merging into the left lane from the median.
VSP said that caused Cutler to veer off of the roadway and hit a tree in the embankment.
Cutler was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from the car when it hit the tree.
VSP said Cutler was the only person in the car, and he died on impact.
The case will be reviewed by the Commonwealth's Attorney office.
