AMELIA COUNTY, Va. -- Troopers have identified the man who died Saturday night after being struck by a car while changing a tire on Hull Street road.

Sgt. Steve Vick with Virginia State Police said the accident happened around 9 p.m. just east of Route 698 in Amelia County.

Two men were changing the tire of a 1996 Mercury Tracer on the right shoulder of the road. A 2006 Ford van was also pulled over with emergency flashers to give the men changing the tires more light. Shortly after, a 2007 Pontiac struck the back of the Ford and then hit the Mercury and one of the men changing the tire., said Sgt. Vick.

Travious Donque Garrison, 26, of Richmond died at the scene. The driver of the Pontiac, Spencer Ballou, was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Troopers say he was not wearing a seat belt. No one in the Ford van was injured.

The crash remains under investigation. Charges are pending.
