Fatal crash on highway near Manassas kills 89-year-old driver

Anyone in Manassas who has lost a loved one in a car accident has a number of questions following such a tragedy. Manassas families dealing with the aftermath of loss following fatal car accidents want someone held accountable for their untimely loss. A family is now struggling with this loss after a fatal motor vehicle accident that occurred just a few days after Christmas.

The accident occurred late in the morning of December 28, according to the Virginia State Police. An 89-year-old woman was travelling westbound on Interstate 66 when she reportedly attempted to make a U-turn at an emergency crossover to get into the eastbound lanes. The woman’s vehicle was struck on the driver’s side door by a Ford Ranger as she made the turn.

The woman died from injuries she sustained from the impact. There was significant damage to the driver’s side door and quarter panel of the vehicle. Neither of the two occupants in the Ford Ranger was seriously injured.

Virginia State Police have indicated that no charges will be filed in this accident. Even so, in many cases, injuries can manifest themselves days or weeks following an accident. If any of the occupants in the Ranger find themselves in pain after the accident, they may have a case for personal injury claims if the other driver is found to be negligent enough to have caused the accident. Also, the family of the deceased driver might opt to pursue a wrongful death claim depending on the circumstances of the accident.
