Albemarle County Police are investigating a fatal crash in the 4100 block of Richmond Road involving a pick-up truck.

19-year-old Levi Andrew Gibson of Charlottesville was driving on 250 East just before 7 a.m., when he somehow drove off the road, just before the guardrail, and crashed into a fence and trees.

"[He] ran off the right shoulder of the road, struck a fence and some trees," said Sgt. Glenn Fink of the Albemarle County Police Department." There was one particular large tree that did the predominate amount of damage to the vehicle."

The East Rivanna Fire Company was first at the accident and pronounced Gibson dead when they arrived on the scene.
