A 52-year-old Culpeper man died Wednesday after his vehicle slammed into the rear of a disabled tractor-trailer parked on the shoulder of U.S. 29 near the Route 299 exit (Madison Road), according to Virginia State Police.

 VSP spokesman Sgt. Les Tyler said Brian Lynn Seay was southbound in a 2002 Saturn four-door sedan about one-tenth of a mile north of the exit when his sedan rear-ended the southbound 2012 J.B. Hunt truck around 7:45 p.m.

The truck driver Jerry Lynn Cosby, 45, of Downsville, La. was cited for failing to display his warning devices otherwise known as traffic triangles, a state-regulated requirement for commercial vehicles.

Cosby did, however, have his hazard lights flashing at the time of the crash, Tyler said.  

“He had a flat tire and had pulled off the right shoulder waiting for a service truck,” Tyler continued.

 Tyler said Seay ran off the right shoulder and struck the right rear corner of the tractor- trailer.

 VSP Trooper J.T. Custer responded to this crash and was assisted by the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office and Culpeper Volunteer Fire and Rescue.

The cause and factors of this crash are still under investigation.
