A man died after his SUV was struck by a pickup truck that allegedly ran a red light in Lorton, Va., officials said.

The crash occurred around 8:40 p.m. Thursday at Ox Road between Hooes and Lorton roads, according to Fairfax County Police.

Officials said an initial investigation shows that Brian Beyreuther, 45, of Lorton was driving a Ford Escape along Hooes Road and was going to make a left onto Ox Road when he was struck by a Dodge Ram that ran a red light.
