Crash Between Alexandria Officer and Civilian Sends Officer to Hospital

A collision between a police cruiser with the Alexandria Police Department and a civilian vehicle resulted in the cruiser being shoved off of the road and into a building near the street early in April. The incident, which happened on Tuesday, April 3rd, resulted in the officer on duty in the cruiser being taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. An official report filed by the Alexandria police department states that the crash is still under investigation while the authorities attempt to discover just what happened to cause the two cars to ram into one another with such force.

Sterling Resident Issued DUI after Traffic Violation

Not much information has been recorded for posterity about an incident that happened along Palisades Parkway and Tripleseven Road in the Loudoun County town of Sterling, several Fridays ago, on the 20th of April. What we do know indicates that the incident involved only one vehicle and that the driver of this vehicle was likely alone in their car at the time.

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Pull Trapped Driver from Floodwaters

Floodwaters that began rising throughout Thursday night in Tysons resulted in dangerous road conditions for drivers attempting to navigate a morning commute through certain low-lying areas. While the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department did put out a warning regarding the water (and also included a safety video on their blog to alert motorists to the situation as well as offer advice on what to do if you are inside of a car when it becomes trapped in a flood), the message still failed to prevent a motorist from becoming adrift in the unexpectedly damp rush hour.

Lamborghini Sheers in Half After Collision with Concrete Pole in Tysons Corner

Crash reconstruction units at work in Fairfax County are in the process of investigating a crash that happened early on Friday morning. Reports from the scene are so far incomplete, although it does appear that only one vehicle was involved in the incident and that the single occupant of this vehicle was treated for injuries. It is not clear if this person was transported to a nearby hospital, but we do know that their injuries were deemed to be minor. This fact is rather extraordinary, given the violence of the accident.

According to the official report from the Vienna Police Department, the indict took place at 4:35 in the afternoon, during rush hour and while many people throughout the area were attempting to travel from their places of work to their homes.

DUI Issued After Single Car Crash in Purcellville

On Friday, April 27th, Loudoun County Police received a call shortly before 3:00 in the morning reporting a car accident involving a single vehicle. It is not clear who called the police, whether or not it was the driver of the car or a witness to the incident, but we do know that the authorities arrived at the area shortly after the collision was initially reported.

Driver Killed in Sussex County Road Rage Incident

An incident of road rage is being credited with instigating the death of a man in Sussex County on Thursday, April 26th. While many of the details are still being parsed out by the investigating authorities working within Sussex County, we know that the incident began when the drivers of a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta and a 2010 Honda Odyssey became embroiled in an exchange at around 2:30 in the morning on Thursday while driving down the northern lanes of Interstate 95. According to the report, the 59-year-old man driving the Jetta maneuvered his car so that it was traveling directly in front of the Odyssey. The Jetta's driver than began to dramatically slow their car down until both of the cars came to a complete stop.

Numerous Delays After Four Car Crash in Lorton

It was during the morning commute on Wednesday, April 4th, that four separate cars were traveling down Richmond Highway in the Fairfax County city of Lorton. An initial report from the Fairfax County Fire Department warned motorists attempting to drive through the area to seek out alternate routes as the crash stretched across the turnpike and resulted in the closure of travel spanning across both the north and southern sides.

Stafford County Man Dies in Head-On Collision

On Friday, April 20th, a 23-year-old man from Stafford County, was driving his car through Spotsylvania County when he was involved in an accident that cost him his life. According to the Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Department, the incident happened shortly after 1:00 in the afternoon. The Stafford County man was behind the wheel of a four-door Toyota sedan, driving down the 8900 block of Elys Ford Road, when, for reasons that have yet to be fully explained by the police, he veered out of the eastbound lanes and into the oncoming traffic in the westbound lanes.

Centreville Man Struck and Killed in Fairfax County

A man from Centreville was on foot this past Monday night, April 23rd, near the area of the Lee Highway and Stone Road when he attempted to cross the street and was struck by a passing car. According to the official report from the Sully Police District operating within this area of Fairfax County, the investigation into the crash has so far revealed that the incident took place at 11:00 at night, and it is believed that someone-either a witness to the crash or the driver of the car that struck the man-called 9-1-1 immediately after the incident took place to report it to the authorities.
