HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- State police have released the name of the driver killed in a wreck on Interstate 295 in Henrico County early Friday morning.

Troopers were called to the wreck at the I-295 access road near Woodman Road just after 12:30 a.m., according to Sgt. Dylan Davenport with Virginia State Police.

Shepherd, of Henrico, was partially ejected from the vehicle, Davenport said. He was not wearing his seat belt, according to state police.

There were no other vehicle occupants.
