Teenage passenger from Falls Church dies after single-car wreck

A teenager from Falls Church, Virginia, died last week after he was severely injured several days earlier in an automobile accident. The 18-year-old man was hurt in the crash on January 2, and succumbed to his injuries at Inova Fairfax Hospital on Friday.

Authorities say the fatal car accident happened after midnight on Jan. 2 in the 2900 block of Graham Road in Fairfax County, Virginia. According to the Fairfax County Police, the victim was riding in the back seat of a 2001 Honda Accord. The car's driver lost control of the vehicle and hit a tree, which caused the victim to be ejected from the back seat.

might have been a factor in the deadly crash, according to detectives from the Crash Reconstruction Unit. However, police are continuing to investigate the accident.

While details about the accident are still unclear, what is known is that a passenger died as a result of a one-car accident. Regardless of the official findings of the accident, it would seem that the man's death was preventable. As a teenager, he was just entering into adulthood and had a lifetime of experiences still ahead.

Any family that has endured the death of a loved one in an automobile accident is entitled to be made aware of what happened to cause the accident and what parties should be held responsible, as well as any compensation that may be made available to them. An experienced attorney can often provide the knowledge a grieving family will need to guide it through the difficult days, weeks and months to follow.
