HANOVER COUNTY, Va. -- Deputies have identified a 42-year-old Richmond man killed during a crash in Hanover County during Saturday's ice storm.

Officials said deputies were called to the intersection of Creighton Road and Sledd Lane for a single-vehicle crash just after 10:15 p.m.

A Buick SUV was headed east on Creighton Road when it ran off the right side of the road, crossed back over all travel lanes and then crashed head-on into a ditch, according to investigators.

Deputies said the driver, Jacinto Joseph Thompson of Richmond, was pronounced dead at the scene.

No one else was inside the vehicle, according to deputies.

"Investigators are still collecting information to determine the circumstances that led to this tragic incident," officials said.
