A single-vehicle crash near Hinton killed a Dayton man early Friday morning, according to a Virginia State Police press release.

Sgt. Brent Coffey, a VSP spokesman, said emergency crews responded to the crash on Hinton Road, near the intersection of Potter John Lane, at about 2:30 a.m.

Police say a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 was traveling south on Hinton Road when the driver, Shane J. Moyers, lost control of the truck.

The truck crossed a double solid yellow line, ran off the road to the left, hit a ditch, overturned and hit an unoccupied parked car before coming to rest, police say.

Moyers, 21, was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle, police say.

Coffey said Moyers died at the scene.

The crash remains under investigation by trooper H. Campbell.
