UPDATE: Police say speed contributed to fatal Shore Drive accident in Virginia Beach

Investigators said Leslie Scott Dyer, 40, was killed when his pickup truck ran into a tree in the median.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The Virginia Beach Police Department has been investigating a Wednesday afternoon accident at the intersection of Shore Drive and First Court Road, where a man died.

A representative from dispatch said the first calls about the crash came in at 2:11 p.m.

An updated release from investigators said Leslie Scott Dyer, 40, was killed when his pickup truck ran into a tree in the median.

Police also think Dyer's truck sideswiped a car traveling alongside him, and hit a second vehicle that was turning off the road, before Dyer lost control of the vehicle.

Nobody else reported injuries related to the crash. Investigators think speed was a contributing factor to the accident.

Police haven't charged anyone in the crash.
