A Spotsylvania County man was killed Saturday evening while crossing State Route 3 in Orange County, police said.

State police spokesman Brent Coffey said 42-year-old Brett C. Stannard was in the area of State Route 20 (Constitution Highway) when he was struck by a 2005 Ford Econoline van that was heading east in the right lane.



Stannard died at the scene from injuries sustained in the crash, which took place at 7:45 p.m.

Coffey said the pedestrian was wearing all black and was not in a crosswalk. The Ford’s driver, a 36-year-old Spotsylvania man, was not injured and remained at the scene.

Trooper J.D. Jones is investigating the incident. No charges have been filed.

Coffey said state police were assisted by the Orange Sheriff’s Office and the Orange and Lake of the Woods volunteer fire and rescue departments.
