This post has been updated.

A Loudoun County man was killed when the SUV he was driving was involved in a head-on collision with a dump truck in Manassas on Tuesday afternoon, police said.

According to police, a 65-year-old Alexandria man was driving the dump truck south on Lee Highway near Sudley Road about 2:30 p.m.

The dump truck driver, whose name was not released by police, crossed into the northbound lane and struck the rear panel of another truck, which was carrying four people.

He then overcorrected back into the southbound lanes and subsequently swerved back into the northbound lanes, where the dump truck struck an SUV head-on.

The driver of the SUV, 40-year-old Daniel S. Tulk of South Riding, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. No one else was in the SUV.

The 40-year-old Aldie, Va., woman who was driving the truck whose rear panel was hit sustained a minor injury. No other injuries were reported, police said.

Police said they didn’t know yet whether alcohol or speed were factors in the crash.

No charges have been filed, and the crash is still under investigation.
