The driver in a pickup truck crash last week in Nelson County has died from his injuries.
Virginia State Police say 52-year-old John Turner Jr. was driving along Route 634 last Wednesday, when traffic stopped in front of him. Turner swerved to avoid the stopped vehicles, ran off the road, and hit a rock, causing the truck to roll over.
Police say Turner was not wearing his seat belt, and was thrown from the truck. He was taken to the hospital, where he died on Thursday.
