The crash took place at 8:03 p.m. Monday, April 19. The victim, identified as Leonard Ray Brown of Woodbridge, was flown to an area hospital where he died as a result of his injuries on Wednesday, April 21, according to police.
The driver, a 22-year-old man, was traveling northbound on U.S. 1 when he struck Brown at the intersection with Mt. Pleasant Drive.
