MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Funeral services were held Thursday for a 49-year-old man who died early Sunday after a one-vehicle accident on Eagle School Road, just north of Martinsburg.

Herston "Lennie" Mintz Jr. died at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va., where he was flown after the accident, Berkeley County Sheriff's Department Lt. Ron Gardner confirmed Wednesday night.

Mintz was traveling south toward Martinsburg on Eagle School Road in his work truck when the pickup crossed the center line and struck a tree, Gardner said.

Gardner said the Sheriff's Department investigated the accident at 12:43 a.m. The investigation revealed Mintz was not wearing a seat belt, Gardner said.
