SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY - A Chesapeake man was killed Monday when his van went off the road and struck a tree in Southampton County.

Va. State Police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Anaya said 72-year-old Claude "Ted" Dove Jr.'s vehicle went off Rt. 460 and into the woods near the Sussex County line.   She says he was not wearing his seat belt.

The crash happened around 9:00 a.m. and forced police to close the right eastbound lane for the investigation.
