Strasburg man dies in two-vehicle accident

A Strasburg man died in a two-vehicle accident Saturday afternoon in the 5800 block of Howellsville Road in Warren County.

State police Sgt. F.L. (Les) Tyler identified the victim as Stuart Michael Burton, 63.

Tyler said Burton's 2005 Chevrolet Corvette was southbound when he crossed the centerline at about 2:14 p.m. and sideswiped a 2005 Ford SUV driven by Bridgett Barker, 27, of Front Royal. The Corvette then continued off the left side of the road, hit a ditch and came to rest in the front yard of a residence, according to Tyler.

Tyler said Burton died at the scene from crash injuries. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Tyler said the crash was investigated by State Trooper T.L. Hilliker with assistance from the Warren County Sheriff's Office and Warren County Fire and Rescue Services. No citations were issued.

Barker and her husband, who was a passenger in the SUV, were uninjured, according to Tyler. He said Burton was not wearing a seat belt.
