FAIRFAX MAN DIES AFTER VEHICLE COLLISION IN McLEAN: A 65-year-old Fairfax man died Nov. 14 from injuries sustained in a crash that occurred at 11:37 p.m. Nov. 13 in McLean, Fairfax County police said.
The victim, Andre Newman, was the driver and sole occupant of a 2012 Nissan Sentra traveling east on Georgetown Pike. The driver of a 2019 Range Rover turned left in front of Newman’s vehicle while trying to access Langley Lane from westbound Georgetown Pike, which resulted in a sideswipe crash.
Newman’s vehicle then left the roadway and came to a stop in a ditch, police said. The driver of the Range Rover, along with three juvenile passengers, were not injured and remained at the scene.
Rescue personnel took Newman to a hospital for treatment. He remained in the hospital and succumbed to his injuries the next morning, police said.
Preliminarily, detectives from the police department’s Crash Reconstruction Unit do not believe that speed and alcohol were factors in the crash. The investigation remains active, and details of the investigation will be presented to the commonwealth’s attorney for review.
Police ask anyone with information about this crash to contact the Crash Reconstruction Unit at (703) 280-0543.
3 INJURED AS SEDAN, BOX TRUCK COLLIDE ON BELTWAY ON McLEAN: Virginia State Police on Nov. 17 at 10:37 a.m. responded to a two-vehicle crash in the northbound lanes of Interstate 495 at the exit ramp for the George Washington Parkway in McLean.
Investigators preliminarily think the accident occurred when a Toyota sedan was stopped partially in the right northbound travel lane and partially on the right shoulder. A box truck came upon the stopped vehicle and tried to change lanes to avoid the Toyota, but the Toyota suddenly pulled into the truck’s travel lane and the two vehicles collided, state police said.
Rescue personnel took the Toyota’s adult female driver and 6-year-old male passenger to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries described as serious but non-life-threatening. Rescue workers also transported an adult female passenger in the Toyota to the hospital, where she was treated for injuries described as life-threatening injuries.
The adult male driver of the box truck was not injured in the crash, which remains under investigation. The Virginia State Police Crash Reconstruction Team is assisting with the ongoing investigation.
