Two Die in Fairfax County Car Crash

Comments (0)

What Happened:

A car was driving on I-66 in Fairfax County, Virginia going westbound near Route 266 when the driver appears to have fallen asleep. The car flew off the interstate and drove into a tree. A woman passenger and her sister in law died at the scene. The driver suffered minor injuries and went to the hospital.

Police stated that alcohol was not a factor in the wreck, but driver fatigue may have been involved. The driver could face charges in the future, according to the Washington Times.

The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:

We regret the loss of life in this unfortunate accident. It is unfortunate that something as simple as driver fatigue could lead to such tragic results. This is a good reminder that all of us should be sure to be well rested before we drive. A Virginia personal injury lawyer could help the families of the deceased to file a civil claim against the driver in this case. While filing a law suit against the driver could be awkward, as the passengers knew the driver, you should remember that the suit would be filed against the driver’s car insurance company.
