The Virginia State Police are investigating a crash that killed a Williamsburg man Monday.
Authorities said Kevin Michael Bryant died at the scene. He was wearing a seatbelt.
Bryant was 39 years old.
It happened at 6:42 p.m. on Interstate 64 near mile marker 205 in New Kent.
Bryant was driving a 2008 Chevrolet Impala east in the left lane “when a tree from the median fell and struck the vehicle,” police said.
“Well from what I understand, it was rainy that day,” said State Police spokeswoman Shelby Crouch. “It wasn’t hit by anything, the car didn’t hit the tree, it just fell.”
Authorities had to notify Bryant’s next of kin so the news alert released earlier in the week did not have information on his identity.
