Southampton County, Va. – A Hampton man was killed in a crash on Southampton Parkway near Adams Grove Saturday morning.

The victim has been identified as 22-year-old Stephen Williams of Hampton. Williams was pronounced dead at the scene by medics.

Witnesses told deputies the man was driving recklessly and swerving on the road before the crash, and may have been using a handheld electronic device while driving.
