A Fieldale man was killed early Tuesday morning in a crash in Henry County. Alcohol may have been a contributing factor to the accident, according to Virginia State Police.
The wreck happened at 3:30 a.m. on Route 220, about a tenth of a mile south of Route 849 in Henry County.
Tyre Johnson, 29, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt.
Investigators say Johnson’s 2004 Ford Explorer was headed north on Route 220 when it ran off the right side of the road and hit a tree.
