"The preliminary investigation reveals that a 2010 F150 was headed west on [Dahlgren Road] when it ran off the road to the right and struck a curb," Davenport said. "The F150 subsequently struck two utility poles with one coming to rest on top of the vehicle."

The driver, Kig W. Chan of Potomac, Maryland, was taken to an area hospital where he succumbed to his injuries, Davenport said.
