Chesterfield police are investigating a two vehicle crash that left one man dead.

The accident happened around 9:45 p.m. Saturday in the 5100 block of Courthouse Road. A Honda CR-V traveling south on Courthouse Road lost control and crossed into the northbound lanes, hitting a Chevrolet Suburban, according to police.
