A King George County man died yesterday morning after the car he was driving sideswiped another vehicle and hit a truck head-on.

William M. Finn, 55, of Faith Drive in King George died at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt, said State Police Sgt. Thomas Molnar.

Finn was driving a 1995 Ford Taurus and heading east on State Route 3, north of Saint Anthony's Road, when the accident occurred at 10:19 a.m. His Taurus crossed over the double yellow line and sideswiped a 2006 Mazda Tribute, then struck a 2009 International box truck head-on. The Mazda and truck were headed west at the time of the crash.

The occupants of the other vehicles were wearing seat belts and were not hurt, Molnar said. The Mazda was driven by Annette Schaul of King George and the box truck by Edward Wall of Mechanicsville.

Both lanes of Route 3 were closed for almost three hours yesterday as crews investigated the crash. Motorists were detoured around the scene.

The King George County Sheriff's Office assisted with the investigation.
