RICHMOND, Va. -- A man has died following a crash on westbound I-195 Wednesday evening.

Police say a man driving a 2016 Cadillac Escalade was traveling westbound on I-195 when he ran off road left striking the guardrail.  The vehicle then went over the guardrail, striking a pole, and overturning on the driver's side in the median.

"The driver, Dimitri R. Bradley, 51, of Moseley, Va., was not wearing his seat belt. He died at the scene," a Virginia State Police spokesperson said. "Speed is being considered as a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation."

Two lanes of the Downtown Expressway in Richmond (VA-195) were closed following a crash.
