VIRGINIA BEACH--Police Wednesday released the name of the person killed when the SUV he was riding in crashed in Va. Beach.

18-year-old Paul Edward Mailman was a passenger in the vehicle that went off London Bridge Road and Drakesmile Road and into trees around 4:15 p.m.  Police said the 17-year-old girl driving the SUV lost control on the two-lane undivided highway.

Police said the two were friends.

She was treated and released, police stated.

Police are working to determine what caused her to lose control. They say the road was wet from an earlier rain. They stressed neither alcohol nor drugs were factors.

The case will be reviewed by the Commonwealth Attorney's Office to determine whether charges will be filed.

Police closed Shipps Corner Road from Old Clubhouse Road and London Bridge Road for the investigation.
