Virginia State Police Trooper W. Diberardine is investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash in Warren County.
The crash occurred Wednesday at 9:35 p.m. near the intersection of Route 522 (Winchester Road) and Crooked Run Plaza.
A 2001 Ford F-150 traveling North on Route 522 ran off the left side of the roadway, drove through a median, crossed the southbound lanes of traffic and continued driving off road. The Ford then drove through a retention pond, went airborne and overturned before coming to rest against a tree.
The driver of the Ford, Shawn E. Stensland, 31, of White Post, was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. Stensland was transported to Winchester Medical Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries.
Stensland later succumbed to his injuries.
Alcohol and speed are both being considered factors in the crash.
The crash remains under investigation.
