Virginia State Police said a Chesterfield County resident was the man who died Thursday after his pickup truck hit another pickup and then a tractor-trailer on Interstate 95.

Police said Joseph W. Ashworth, 74, of Chesterfield was driving a Ford F-150 in the center lane of southbound I-95 near the Willis Road exit. About 4:20 p.m., Ashworth’s truck veered into the left lane and hit a pickup truck before veering back to the right lane and hitting a Freightliner tractor-trailer, which was hauling a farm tractor.

Police said Ashworth was not wearing a seat belt. He died at the scene.

The drivers of the other pickup and the tractor-trailer were not injured. Police said both were wearing seat belts.

The crash remains under investigation.
