CHARLES CITY COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) -- There is a new information about a wreck that killed a father and son in Charles City County earlier this month.

Troopers said 19-year-old Jayme Street was riding in the pick-up truck with his father, Warren Lewis, when their Ford F-150 ran off the road, hit a tree and then caught fire March 9.

State police said both men were wearing their seat belts.

State police said the crash is still being investigated.
