— Services were scheduled in Virginia on Friday for a man who died Monday in a wreck in Cary, where police are still searching for the driver of a vehicle that they say caused the crash.

Lincoln Ross Woods, 25, died in the wreck on Morrisville Carpenter Road when a bus swerving to avoid a third car hit his Jeep.

Visitation was set for the Peninsula Funeral Home in Newport News, Va., at 6 p.m. Thursday. The funeral service was set for the same location Friday at 11 a.m.

Woods will be buried in Arlington National Cemetery at a later date.

He served five years in the U.S. Marine Corps, including a deployment to Iraq, according to his obituary in the Daily Press, in Virginia.

Woods worked as an air traffic controller at Raleigh-Durham International Airport. He left behind a wife, Ashley, who is pregnant with a daughter.

Cary police said they are still looking for the gray Ford Taurus that witnesses said ran a stop sign and caused the bus driver to swerve. Officers have not filed any charges, but were working with the Wake County District Attorney's Office.
