Virginia police: Speed, alcohol may be factors in deadly crash

A fatal motor vehicle accident sent a police officer to a hospital and resulted in another driver’s death on an early Monday morning in Alexandria recently. On Aug. 13, a driver suddenly swerved to his left near the intersection of Van Dorn Street and Franconia Road. A police car was headed in the opposite direction at the same time, and the consequence was a deadly head-on collision.

Fatal car accidents are, unfortunately, not uncommon in Virginia. Earlier this month, authorities located the body of a 27-year-old woman — previously missing — in her car in Giles County. She had been in a car crash and her vehicle fell almost 50 feet down an embankment.

In the Alexandria crash, the incident forced closings of area roadways while crews remedied the situation. It was too late for the driver of the car that inexplicably swerved into the oncoming lane, however. That vehicle, a 2006 Infiniti, caught fire following the violent impact, and the driver died at the scene.

The police officer in the other vehicle became briefly trapped in his car, although rescue personnel were able to transport him to a nearby medical center after a fellow motorist helped to get him out of the squad car. A veteran of his police department for seven years, the officer sustained injuries in the crash.

The crash happened around 3 a.m., and Fairfax County police are still investigating the causes of the crash, speculating that it may have involved alcohol, excessive speed or a combination thereof.
