Gregory Allen Hurst, 70, of Fredericksburg, the owner of the car, died at the scene. He was a passenger and was wearing his safety belt.
The driver, Aaron T. Frazier, 40, of Fredericksburg, was taken to Mary Washington Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. He also wore a safety belt.

No charges have been filed.
The crash shut down Manning Drive, between U.S. 1 and Forbes Street, well into the afternoon.
