FRONT ROYAL -- A Fort Valley man was killed Tuesday in a single-vehicle crash on Va. 55 at Buckton.

Arthur Lewis Galford, 49, died at the scene as a result of injuries sustained in the crash near the intersection of Rogers Mill Road at about 5:45 a.m., according to Sgt. F.L. Tyler of the state police.

Galford was driving eastbound on Va. 55 when his 1997 Ford Ranger pickup ran off the right side of the road, striking a guard rail and then overturning, Tyler said. Galford, who was partially ejected, was not wearing a seat belt, Tyler said.

The crash is being investigated by Trooper S.A. Sutherland, who was assisted at the scene by the Warren County Sheriff's Office and local fire and rescue units.
