One person died in a single-vehicle car crash Saturday evening in Nelson County.

At 7:55 p.m., Timothy W. Brown, 50, of Tyro, was traveling east on Crabtree Falls Highway just west of Battery Hill Lane when his 1991 Nissan Terrano ran off the right side of the road, struck several trees and overturned, according to a Virginia State Police news release.

An earlier version of the release stated the vehicle had continued about 50 feet into the woods before coming to a stop.

Brown died at the scene. He was not wearing a seatbelt.

An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the crash remains ongoing.
