The Virginia State Police is investigating a single-vehicle crash which resulted in the death of a Huddleston man. The crash occurred Sunday around noon on Route 626, six-tenths of a mile south of Route 1326 in Bedford County.

According to the state police, a 2018 Toyota Avalon was traveling south on Route 626 when the vehicle ran off the left side of the road, struck a mailbox, and then a tree.

The driver of the Toyota was identified as John Francis Finnegan, 75, of Huddleston. Finnegan was not wearing his seatbelt and was transported to Bedford Memorial Hospital, where he later died.
