MECHANICSVILLE, VA (WWBT) -

A Mechanicsville man injured in a crash earlier this week has died and the driver has been charged.

Dennis J. Tobin, 65, was inspecting a flat tire on the side of Old Cavalry Drive at 8 a.m. Monday when a 17-year-old driver hit his car and then smashed into him.

Tobin was taken to VCU Medical Center where he died on Wednesday. The driver has been charged with reckless driving. Neither speed nor alcohol appears to have been a factor.
