The Plains man killed Friday in vehicle crash

A 40-year-old Fauquier man died Friday afternoon in a vehicle crash not far from his home, according to Virginia State Police.

Westbound on John Marshall Highway (Route 55), a 2019 Jeep Cherokee “failed to maneuver a curve, ran off the right side of the roadway and collided with a tree” near O’Bannon Road (Route 698), Sgt. Brent Coffey wrote in a press release. “The Jeep then caught fire.”

The driver, John V. Barr, 40, of The Plains, died at the scene of the crash as a result of his injuries. The accident, just more than a mile east of The Plains, took place at 1:55 p.m. Nov. 13, according to state police.

Mr. Barr wore a seatbelt.

Trooper T. Ralls continues to investigate the single-vehicle.
