HANOVER COUNTY, Va. -- A Virginia man was killed in crash on Clazemont Road in Hanover, according to the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office.

Joseph Anthony Field, 67, of Columbia, died at the scene of the crash Monday at about 5:53 p.m.

"The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2011 Jeep sport utility vehicle was traveling northbound on Clazemont Road, when it came around a curve, crossed the center double solid line and collided head on with a 2006 Toyota sedan [driven by Field]," Lt. James Cooper wrote in an email. "All five occupants in the 2011 Jeep sport utility vehicle were transported to the hospital. Three of the five occupants had serious but non-life threatening injuries."

Field was alone in his car at the time of the crash.

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