Virginia State Police continue to investigate a fatal crash that killed a Bassett man this morning shortly after 11 a.m. on Route 687.

A preliminary investigation has revealed that a 1999 Ford Explorer was heading east on Route 687 when the driver hit an icy patch in the road, which caused the vehicle to run off the left side of the road.

60-year-old Michael Hopkins, of Bassett, was the driver of the Ford Explorer. Police say he was wearing a safety belt at the time of the crash, but was pronounced dead at the scene.
