ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — A Lexington man lost his life late Saturday night after an SUV overturned in Rockbridge County, police say.

According to Virginia State Police, the single-vehicle crash took place at approximately 10:10 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27 along Spring Branch Road, just south of Lacy Lane.

Authorities say a 1996 Ford Explorer was traveling on Spring Branch Road when it ran off the right side of the road, overcorrected, and overturned.

The driver of the Ford — identified by officials as 58-year-old Alvin O’Neal Merchant of Lexington — was not wearing his seatbelt and died at the scene of the wreck.

Police tell WFXR News that alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the deadly crash, which is still under investigation.
