Virginia Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman Dawn Brantley said Monday that the death was storm-related. She says officials haven’t yet determined whether the death of a man found in standing water in Hampton is storm-related.

Barnes was driving south on Route 708 on Sunday, Oct. 9, when he ran off the, hit a culvert and went up onto an embankment and overturned. Anaya says it is unknown at this time if alcohol was a factor.

Barnes was reportedly not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
