ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — A Virginia Department of Transportation contract truck driver working to clear snowy roads has died after he was struck by another VDOT truck.

Virginia State Police say the crash occurred just before 6 a.m. Thursday at Belmont Ridge Road in Ashburn.

Police say the driver, 32-year-old Lovo Guevara Geovany Arnoldo of Vienna, pulled off the road and was standing behind his truck when he was hit by the second VDOT truck. Geovany Arnoldo was taken to a hospital, where he died. The other driver was not injured.

Police say the crash is under investigation.

VDOT spokeswoman Joan Morris told WTOP-FM radio that "we're devastated by the news" but declined to discuss the crash in detail.

Parts of Loudoun County received more than a foot of snow overnight.
