Fairfax County police said a 31-year-old man was killed in a car crash in the McLean area early Sunday.

Police said Curtis Mathia Rustin IV of McLean was driving a 2005 Nissan Altima that crashed into woods near the intersection of Dolley Madison Boulevard and Waverly Way just before 2 a.m. Police said he was the lone occupant.

Detectives from the Crash Reconstruction Unit said Rustin was driving northbound on Dolley Madison Boulevard when the car veered off the road and crashed into two trees. Fire and rescue workers found Rustin dead on the scene.

Police said speed may have been a factor in the crash. Nothing indicates another car was involved, police said, and they are investigating whether alcohol played any role.

Detectives ask anyone with information about the crash to call the Crash Reconstruction Unit at 703-280-0543 or anonymously through Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (866-411-8477). Tips can also be left through the Fairfax County police mobile tips 411 app or by texting “FCCS,” followed by the information, to 847411. A cash reward of $100 to $1,000 is offered for information leading to an arrest, police said.
