CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — Police identified the driver who was killed after his pickup slid across a grassy area of the shoulder and down an embankment into a swampy creek Friday morning in Chesterfield County. Walter S. Norman Jr., 71, of Dinwiddie, had pulled off the 13900 block of Allied Road around 11:50 a.m., according to Chesterfield Police.

"Because of the wet conditions, the vehicle slid down an embankment and into a body of water," police said.

While a passenger in the truck was able to escape, officers said Norman was not.

"The driver was pulled from the vehicle by Chesterfield County Fire & EMS personnel and transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead," police said.

Officers said their investigation into the incident is ongoing.
