1 dead, 4 hurt in Va. crash

A 31-year-old man was killed and four others were injured in a single-car accident in Fairfax County early Monday, police said.

Six people were riding in a 2000 Ford Explorer when it hit a tree near Glenclove Drive and Chapel Road, also known as Route 641, in Clifton about 1 a.m.

The 20-year-old driver was uninjured and remained on the scene after the accident, police said. They said speed appears to have played a role in the crash.

Myron Day, 31, of Woodbridge was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident after being ejected from the Explorer, police said.

Four other passengers, ages 14, 15, 17 and 21, were taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital.

"I believe I can fly ... " -- Myron

Uh, by "speed" are we referring to mph, or the "speed" that kills?

Hey kinkysr

You did not ask their legal status or criminal history, you are slipping. I guess their names are not minority sounding enough to warrant your usual comments. Oh well, I am sure there will be more Tyrones and Luis's tomorrow.
