A 30-year-old Reston man was killed last week when he crashed the stolen car he was driving in Rockbridge County, Virginia State Police officials said.

State Police said the crash happened Friday around 5:50 a.m. on Route 850 near Lexington, Va.

Authorities said the 2007 Lexus Rx-350 involved in the crash was stolen from Fairfax County last week.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as Bradley Charles Kilpatrick of Reston. State police say Kilpatrick was not wearing a seatbelt and died at the scene.

The crash remains under investigation.

According to Fairfax County Court records, Kilpatrick had a long list of driving and car theft charges in the last several years. Among them: Grand Larceny Auto Theft (three charges), driving with a suspended license, and fugitive from an arrest warrant.

    Thankfully his stupidity didn’t injure anyone else. Bradley should have chosen another route in life

      To do this kind of damage to a contemporary vehicle you have to be driving pretty fast or roll off a cliff. Note he also did not wear a seatbelt. But then, it would not have helped in this case. It seems some hard core problems take care of themselves.

        I mean, it looks he hit an anti-tank mine it’s so mangled. He must have been doing over 100 and hit a solid wall.

    Oh my god that poor Lexus. My heart goes out to the family that lost such a sweet ride.
