STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. — A 42-year-old man and his 19-year-old son were killed in a car crash in Fredericksburg, Virginia Tuesday evening. Neither of the men were wearing seatbelts, and speed is believed to have been a factor, according to police.

The only person in the Ram was also taken to Mary Washington for treatment, and is expected to recover.
The Mustang's driver was identified as Raymond Morgan Jr, and his passenger was his son, Raymond Morgan III. Both men lived in Stafford
According to deputies, it is believed that the Morgan Jr. was speeding on Belle Plains Road when he lost control of the Mustang, and swerved into oncoming traffic, hitting the Ram. Police said neither Morgan Jr. nor Morgan III were wearing seatbelts.
"While the crash is still under investigation, the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office sends its condolences to the families involved in the accident," the office of the Stafford County Sheriff posted on Facebook.
