A 66-year-old Rapidan man died in a single-vehicle car crash on U.S. 15 Sunday afternoon, according to the Virginia State Police.

VSP Sgt. Les Tyler, spokesman for the Culpeper Division, said Alexander Lane Coughlin was southbound on U.S. 15 in a 2012 Honda pickup about three-tenths of a mile north of Cedar Mountain Drive (Route 649) when he lost control, ran off the right side of the road and struck a tree around 3:45 p.m.

Tyler said Coughlin, who was wearing a seat belt, died at the scene from injuries he suffered from the crash.

Tyler said it remains unclear at this time if alcohol was a factor in the crash but added that speed was a factor in Sunday’s deadly crash.

VSP I.R. Ewing responded and investigated this incident. Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office deputies and local fire and rescue assisted Ewing in this matter.
