A Fredericksburg man was killed wednesday afternoon after the SUV he was driving ran into the back of a truck on I-95 in Spotsylvania County.
Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says that the box truck was parked on the shoulder of the northbound lanes north of Thornburg at about 4 p.m. when a Ford Explorer driven by 21-year-old Jospeh B. Straub Jr struck the rear of the truck. He died at the scene.
A dog riding in Straub's vehicle was taken from the scene by county animal control.
neither of the two men sitting in the cab of the truck was injured.
the cause of the crash remains under investigation, but weather has been ruled out as a factor as the road was clear and dry at the time of the crash.
